MA: Concord police erroneously expose citizens’ personal info

Aaron Curtis reports:

The Concord Police Department is alerting residents to the possible exposure of private citizen’s personal information after the wrong version of the weekly police log was accidentally posted to the town’s website, according to a press release.

The log file posted contained the personal information of individuals who reported incidents or were involved with the department between Jan. 21 to Jan. 27, according to a press release from John Guilfoil Public Relations on behalf of the Concord Police Department.

In some cases names, dates of birth, driver’s license numbers, phone numbers and Social Security numbers were exposed, leading to concerns of the potential of identity theft, Wednesday’s press release states.
