Shannon Pope, a former employee for the Symrna Police Department was arrested last week, accused of inappropriately taking personal information from a crime database, according to authorities.
The former criminal intelligence analyst is accused of accessing personal data, including driver’s license information, for several individuals.
Police allege she then sent it to a police officer, who was not named in the warrant. It wasn’t immediately clear which agency the officer works with.
Also unclear is Pope’s alleged motive for obtaining information from the Georgia Crime Information Center. Police didn’t immediately respond to a request for more details.
Pope, who had worked for the police department for 17 years, had been accessing sensitive information from the database going back to June 2016, according to the warrant.
Efforts to reach Pope were unsuccessful Wednesday afternoon.
She faces 31 counts of felony computer theft.
Pope was arrested June 21 and was released on $4,000 bond, jail records show.
