  • Stacks of Confidential LAPD Personnel Files Left in Public Hallways

    From the Los Angeles Police Protective League blog:

    A very disturbing photo was recently sent to the LAPPL showing stacks of document boxes in the back hallway near the employee main entrance of Northeast Station. Upon closer examination, our surprise turned to outrage.

    The boxes contained confidential personnel complaints against LAPD officers, including names, serial numbers and work locations, in an area fully accessible to all employees! Unfortunately, this shocking discovery is not an isolated case. It is just the latest example of the Department not exercising good judgment and appropriate safeguards in the handling and storing of confidential and sensitive information. This is why protecting officer privacy is a top priority of the League and will continue to be.

    We have fought hard in recent years to ensure that the personnel information of officers remains private. The "Kodak moment" at Northeast is another pointed reminder of what we have been saying for several years: Confidential information about officers is not secure. It is only a matter of time before the financial information provided by officers in sensitive assignments will be compromised if we don’t take a strong stand.

      This is BS. The LAPPL is just making stink for the sake of stink. This scene is repeated in every police facility in the City, on a yearly basis.

      The City truck which picks up such files for storage (two years at the divison, then eight years in the City warehouse) gives a two-day window of pickup/transfer times. Northeast station is built into an old photo processing plant. There is no other place to look those boxes up. And it's not a "Public" hallway - it's in the interior of the station. No public members should be there unless escorted.

      Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.

      Three things I know for sure: (1) No bad deed goes unrewarded, (2) No good deed goes unpunished, and (3) It is entirely possible to push the most devoted, loyal and caring person beyond the point where they no longer give a 5h!t.

            I just got a call from a friend, who is responsible for those boxes being in the Northeast Dvision hallway. He's feeling pretty good about life right now, as LAPD's Southwest Division (AKA: the worst place Sgt. Kieth M. was ever assigned), was found to have been storing it's boxes of "old" personnel files OUTSIDE, IN THE FRIGGIN' PARKING LOT!
