Around 180 people who were arrested between August 27 and September 4 of 2012 had their Social Security numbers exposed by an administrative error. A new software update intended to automatically post regular arrest lists on the department's Facebook page and distribute them to media outlets also released Social Security numbers of those who were arrested. The error was discovered within 45 minutes, but between 70 and 50 individuals accessed the information during that time.
