POLICE DATA ABUSED – Wednesday May 8 2013

– Hundreds of police members have been caught abusing confidential information stored on the operational intelligence database.
Dodgy officers have gained unauthorised access and improperly used sensitive details from the secure LEAP computer system 214 times in the past five years, the Herald Sun can exclusively reveal.
The alarming news comes two days after Victoria Police announced that raids on three properties – one directly linked to a high-profile outlaw bikie gang – had uncovered hundreds of pages from the LEAP network.
Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said the major information link was “one of the gravest breaches of police security” he had seen in his 39-year career.
The Herald Sun can reveal 196 officers, including a superintendent, have been caught misusing the main police database.
A further 15 members of staff at Victoria Police have also illegally abused the network for their own gain.
Three senior sergeants were guilty of improper use and unauthorised access to the database twice each.
The force is investigating officers with links to outlaw motorcycle gangs, as part of Taskforce Eagle launched in March. Detectives within the taskforce spearheaded raids three weeks ago, which uncovered top-secret police information, including the names of police informants.
Police believe a junior officer is at the centre of the scandal and will be charged.
Taskforce Keel was set up this week to ascertain if the unnamed officer, who has been suspended without pay, had bikie links before joining the force.
Assistant Commissioner Emmett Dunne said the LEAP database breaches would not be tolerated – Jon Kaila


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
