Shreveport oversight causes security concerns

Brittany Pieper reports that the City of Shreveport, Louisiana left lots of personal and sensitive information lying around when they held a pre-demolition auction of furnishings at the City Hall Annex building. People found boxes of records with breath alcohol tests, signatures, SSNs, addresses, ID cards, and a whole lot more.

KSLA News 12 asked city leaders why this information was left out, and discovered they didn’t know it was there.

“No, that’s not good at all,” said Director of Operational Services, Mike Strong.

“I would never be comfortable with anyone’s personal information being available or accessible,” said Mayor Cedric Glover.

Within an hour of speaking with KSLA News 12, Strong had 1 of his employees cleaning out the building. That employee said the documents were from a stack that was supposed to be burned, but instead somehow got scattered during the move.
