A USB drive is missing from Lothian and Borders Police with details of
hundreds of police investigations.
A police spokesman confirmed to IT PRO that Lothian and Borders Police
are "unable to locate this "memory stick," which contains information on
vehicle registration marks and other details used for police analysis."
The memory stick was last used by staff working within the Road Policing
Division of Police Headquarters in Edinburgh and an intensive search is
advancing quickly to find it. They will review how information is
handled and transported within the organisation.
"It is understood that the information contained on the stick was not
encrypted as it was information being transferred within a secure
compound within Police Headquarters," the police spokesman revealed.
