UK police officer fined over privacy breach

Looks like another UK police officer has been disciplined for violating data protection laws by snooping.   The Jersey Evening Post reports that Paul Byrne misused the force’s database to look up the address of a woman who is dating his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.   He was fined £300 by the Magistrate’s Court and could face further punishment at a disciplinary hearing.
