Clayton County sheriff looks into security breach


The Clayton County sheriff is investigating a security breach in which deputies' personal information was taken from internal files.

The records include Social Security numbers, driver's license numbers, dates of birth, telephone numbers and employee identification numbers. Auhorities say some internal investigation files also are missing.

Sheriff Kem Kimbrough says he suspects a sheriff's department employee illegally entered the Office of Professional Standards, copied the deputies' internal records and distributed the information.

He says it's against department police to copy internal affairs files and a violation of state law to compromise personal information.

The new sheriff says he has since changed the locks throughout the sheriff's deparatment complex.

In addition to finding the records missing, Kimbrough also has discovered weapons, keys and other equipment missing since taking office on Jan. 1.
