Is it just me, or is the new chief becoming more and more dictatorial with all her new 'policies'? She has stumbled badly out of the gate with her attempt to farm out investigations to the BCA, and now this?

Judging from the story here, the restrictions may only apply to data involved in a formal investigation. No mention of data gathered in routine Big Brother sweeps.

It would seem the policy does not apply to the Police Chief's inner circle. At times, a CEO can not leak information that would put the organization in good light, due to contracts, labor agreements and pending litigation. But the task is delegated to others in the administration. Apparently in this shop, what's is good for the goose is not good for the gander.

Here is a simple solution...the media should snitch off their snitches and we then would know who all the culprits are...it could be done all under the "Transparency Umbrella"...Now that would be a Christmas List worth sharing! Loose lips sink ships...the newsies could solve this very easily...they won't because it's all a big political game and they would have this inside scoop to one up the other media outlets.
