FDLE Arrests Santa Rosa Detention Deputy

January 10, 2018

Tuesday, agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement arrested Russel Edmund Scott, 49, for theft of intellectual property. Scott was a  Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office detention deputy.

The Sheriff’s Office requested that FDLE investigate Scott for unauthorized possession of SMARTCOP proprietary files on his personal share drive located on the SRCSO computer network system.

SMARTCOP provides system development, implementation and support services for public safety products including computer-aided dispatch, records management, mobile computer with field based reported and jail management systems.

During the investigation, FDLE agents discovered Scott, a former SMARTCOP employee, was in possession of numerous files that he was not authorized to have.

Scott was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail after his arrest.

    “which laws does he enforce, none he’s a correction officer.”

    “Santa Rosa County Sheriff’s Office detention deputy.”

    He works for the Sheriff’s Office, and they enforce the laws which end with, “You stay here for the next 10 years,” and suchlike.

    You guys don’t seem to get along.

    “What was he going to do with it.?
    I don’t understand what value it has”

    It allows identity theft with things like social security numbers, addresses owned but them not home to stop burglars, medical condition. Most people don’t want every detail of their lives known to every creep on Earth.

    Just because you or I couldn’t or wouldn’t misuse the information is not the same as saying nobody could or would.

    David for better people

    As a CO, are they supposed to show the booking photo and list the suspect’s address to the the public in the jail booking info?

    When are law enforcement officers going to come to realize that they are held to a higher standard and that they live in a fish bowl.
