AHPA LogoOfficer Safety Compromised After Hackers Release Confidential DPS Information

Association wants individuals prosecuted to the highest degree of the law

Phoenix, AZ – The Arizona Highway Patrol Association (AHPA) was made aware that hackers, that identify themselves as LulzSec, released confidential information from the Department of Public Safety’s (DPS).  AHPA is concerned that the files released could jeopardize the safety of many DPS officers and employees.

“Law enforcement officials go to many lengths to protect their identities,” states Jimmy Chavez, President of the AHPA.  “These individuals maliciously released confidential information knowing the safety of DPS employees, and their families, would be compromised.  A threat to release more DPS files demonstrates how heinous the hackers are willing to act. The AHPA would like to see the people brought to justice and prosecuted to the highest degree of the law.”

Founded in 1958, the AHPA’s mission is to promote the positive role of Law Enforcement Professionals, and to protect and secure rights and benefits for their members through effective representation with local, state and national governments.
