Web of fury over police pictures

PUBLISHED November 12, 2004

The Devon and Cornwall Constabulary is being taken to court by its own officers because the force is insisting on publishing their photos.

Officers say pictures posted on the internet have been used to make "wanted" posters and they and their families have suffered abuse.
Community policing is a force priority. To improve its Neighbourhood Beat Managers' profiles, each has been told they must have a photograph on the force's website.
