Victorian police stung over privacy breaches

A report by former Victorian Privacy Commissioner, Paul Chadwick, tabled in Parliament this week highlights "years of recurring, systematic" breaches of privacy in the management of the Police data base used for the conduct of policing functions.

The report concludes an investigation commenced last year following the mistaken release to officials in the Department of Justice and the Department of Corrections of 7000 pages of information on police files of 290 Victorians.

The Commissioner has issued orders requiring recification of systems. This Herald Sun report summarises issues or see the full report - "Mr. C's Case" 23 August 2006
