Posting DUI arrests on web halted

March 10, 2010

According to this article, Honolulu’s police department is no longer posting photos and names of DUI arrests to a website.  The department claims that this is standard review for a pilot program that has been running for four months. 

However, the ACLU protested the effort as an invasion of privacy.  Even if the information was posted for a short time, social networking sites were re-publishing information making sure it had a much longer shelf life.  I have blogged about a couple Texas jurisdictions doing something similar using Twitter.
