Ohio to launch system to stop ex-government employees from accessing law enforcement database


CINCINNATI — Ohio’s attorney general’s office plans to start a system later this month to stop former government employees from accessing Ohio’s law enforcement database.

Attorney General Mike DeWine’s office is making security changes to the database that includes stricter password standards.

Police and court employees who leave their job don’t automatically lose access to the database and its personal information about nearly all Ohioans.

Some are able to get into the system for up to a year.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the attorney general’s office has been working for more than a year on a system that will allow police chiefs and court officials to remove access of former workers.
