Muscogee Sheriff’s Deputy disciplined for emailing personal data on female deputies | Local News | Columbus Ledger Enquirer

A male deputy for the Muscogee County Sheriff’s Department was disciplined last week after sending out an email and attachment with personal information of female deputies who use bullet proof vests.

Point Blank, the maker of protective gear for law enforcement departments, had sent the department a notice that female deputies shouldn’t be using old vests after stress tests revealed the vests were unsafe, Muscogee County Sheriff John Darr said Tuesday.

The quartermaster, the deputy responsible for department supplies, sent the information from Point Blank not only to the women deputies, but throughout the department. The document contained the deputies names, serial number of the vests and personal information including height, weight, chest and cup sizes. “To be honest, he made a mistake, no excuse,” the sheriff said. “He probably should have been a little more diligent in checking that information before giving it out. He wasn’t trying to embarrass anybody, he wasn’t trying to be malicious about it.”

Personal information of 15 to 20 female deputies was on the email. “Unfortunately, there was some information that should not have been on there,” Darr said. “For that reason, we have disciplined the employee and we dealt with the situation.”
