LAPD confidential files published on web

February 7, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
Authorities in Los Angeles say a confidential report on police misconduct that included the names of hundreds of officers was mistakenly posted on the Internet. The Police Commission report was e-mailed to the news media. It also was posted on a city Web site on Friday but removed less than an hour later.

The report included the names of about 250 officers that the internal affairs unit had investigated over allegations of racial profiling.

Police Commission Executive Director Richard Tefank called it an "unfortunate mistake."

Commission and LAPD representatives apologized to the president of the police union, the Police Protective League.

Union president Paul M. Weber called it "absolutely outrageous."
