Sheriff's Department investigating who leaked Berger unemployment information


WILMINGTON, NC (NEWS RELEASE) - At the request of Commissioner Brian Berger, Sheriff Ed McMahon has initiated an investigation into a possible breach of the state’s personnel policy regarding access to information contained in a personnel file.

While it has been determined by the District Attorney that the county did not break the law by releasing the information in question, the Sheriff’s Office investigation will focus on the person or persons who may be responsible for alerting others to the existence of the document.
