Nothing the police could do, huh? Even if a crime wasn't committed, at least he could have taken possession of the papers, it's called being active policing and being proactive. What if the retailer that discovered these documents had not been kind enough to secure them and some unscrupulous person used them to commit identity theft? Sometimes I have no use for the police.

Well done Mr. Nick Campbell. You are to be commended for your actions. In my opinion, you are an up-standing citizen, with much concern for the welfare of other citizens. The Cop that did respond to your call had absolutely no duty or responsibility for dealing with the documents, but on the other hand, he could have been of some help in retrieving them from the dumpster. Thanks a million for taking the time to consider the consequences that could have occured, had you not acted.

Is not the purpose of law enforcement to engage in crime prevention as well as crime detection. Maybe my understanding of the roll of law enforcement is completely wrong after all these years. Technically a crime was not committed, but obviously by seizing that information a lot of potentially serious could have been easily prevented. I'm not sure what to make if this incident.

Troll,
Take a look at this document. It explains in the various chapters, the responsibilities of Law Enforcement Agencies through out the State. A lot of good information.

Kudos to Nick Campbell.

Apparently prevention of crime isn't within the scope of the Morrow Police Department. One can only hope that the responding officer gets some training and a repremand. I guess he hasn't heard about the $3 billion lost to credit card fraud and ID Theft last year.

that set of documents are only suggested, not in practice at all agencies.

The 'laws' are uniform throughout the entire State. The enforcement of the 'laws' is supposed to be uniform throughout the State. This Operations Manual refers to the Agency, which is all Law Enforcement Agencies throughout the State. On the other hand, various Rules and Regulations promulgated by the various Administrative Agencies, can and will vary depending on the local conditions; i.e., EPD watering ban in effect in north Georgia, does NOT apply in south-east Georgia. A violation of 'law' in Tunnel Hill, Georgia requires the same enforcement as the same violation of the same 'law' in St. Marys, Georgia. This Operations Manual was published by The Department of Community Affairs of Georgia, so that Law Enforcement is uniform throughout the entire State. Thats the way is is supposed to be, according to the Constitution of the State of Georgia.

Well I am the guy that found the documents and what shocked me more was that the cop that showed up wanted me to dig through the dumpster and do it myself. As well as it took me about 3 hours to get the police on the phone. I called the number to the office several times and then eventually had to call 911 to see what to do about it.

Nick,
If, in fact you are the real person that found and took action with the documents, congratulations. You did a very good thing indeed. Thanks

The LAWS are uniform but Policies are not, Protocals are not, Operations are not. Some agencies do not enforce laws that others do! Take for instance, gambling on video machines, WHO enforces that?? Hardly anybody!!!!!!!!!!

I was signed up with Invision and was well qualified for several jobs I never got an interview for. I followed up with a friend and it was always a white girl who got the job. I have a great resume and don't like being color coded by RACE.
The cleaning company was blamed for throwing the files away. There isn't a cleaning co. because their place was a mess & I asked if I could clean it for a reduced rate & was told they've never had a cleaning co. and it wasn't in their budget. Maybe someone could look into this.
I've also heard from a friend that some of their ID's and SS # were used for other employees.
Why are they constantly changing the name of their company? Kim Singgly, the district manager has a shady past. Someone needs to look at her regarding identity theft.
