Police databases are good for you

Hundreds of police workers have faced disciplinary action for looking at internet pornography and social networking sites, figures show.

More than 400 officers and support staff have been sacked or given warnings after being caught looking at inappropriate material online.

Officers have also been dismissed for using police databases to check out people’s backgrounds for personal reasons.

As you can guess, that last sentence is the one to pay most attention to. The more of your information, your personal data is held on external systems, the more attractive it will be to those wanting to exploit it.

This is basic nature. If you collect the slaughtered meat in one place, that is where the predators will go.
