I can certainly understand why law enforcement agencies want to look at your Facebook Myspace or Twitter accounts as part of a background investigation.. but why do some agencies not even allow you to have any social networking account. Are they afraid you might say something that would bring shame on the agency or that are going to put too much personal information... maybe someone can explain that.

I think it could be because you could post some sensitive confidential information that you might not supposed to disclose.

I can see why they would want to prevent that but if an officer was going to do that what's to keep them from talking about it in public which would probably be in a more localized setting where the information would be more relevant.

I've been an officer for 5 years. I'm sure there might be some out there, but I don't know any police departments that prohibit members of their department from having a social networking account.
