    Hackers Post Personal Police Information

    This doesn't sound good. Don't know why they did it, unless they were "hacked" off at Law Enforcement.

    Hackers Post W.Va. Police Officers' Personal Info


    The president of the West Virginia Chiefs of Police Association says hackers obtained more than 150 officers' personal information from the organization's old website and posted it online.

    Hackers gonna hack. No info on the web is safe. I doubt it had their social security numbers, so it probably doesn't say much more than a phone book would.

    I don't see the big deal in finding out LEOs' addresses; the squad car in the driveway is a pretty visual clue.

    I just wondered why anyone would go to the trouble of hacking into that site.

    If they were doing it for revenge, perhaps they missed the mark a bit?

    not all depts have take home vehicles, we don't and I like it that way, I don't want me and my family to be more of a target for things like young punks vandalizing up to the gangs wanting to shoot up a cop or his house, I have enough to deal with, with their death threats, etc

    if people can find out where folks live through public info thats already out there....thats one thing, but for some of these idiots to hack and put the info out there should not be tolerated, and I would feel this way whether or not I was a cop, nobody...LEO or not...deserves to have their personal info broadcast for all to see
