Keeping Police Officers Safe Online

PrivacyIn light of recent shootings across the country, Police Officers are on alert. Threats to law enforcement officers are on the rise and there are websites out there posting the personal information of these Officers online, making it easier for people to find them.

While eliminating your information from every online source is nearly impossible, there are steps that can be taken to minimize your risk in the event that you are targeted. Be proactive and restrict your driver’s license and vehicle registration information with the Department of Motor Vehicles. You can also request real estate and personal property records be restricted from online searches with your specific county. The personal information gathered from information-sharing websites and social media sites, could include home addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, passwords, and family members.

The more you can limit a person’s targeting capability, the harder it is for them to find you online.
