DETROIT (WXYZ) - A Detroit police officer has been arraigned on charges she misused a police database.
Detroit Police Officer Mashiriki Jackson turned herself in Tuesday morning to be booked on charges that she misused the Law Enforcement Information Network, otherwise known as LEIN.
LEIN is a police database that officers are supposed to use only for official purposes.
According to the Wayne County Prosecutor, the 34-year-old officer used the database to obtain personal information about a woman. The unauthorized use reportedly occurred on three separate occasions in 2009.
Officer Jackson has been suspended with pay from the Detroit Police.
Jackson was arraigned at 36th District Court. She is facing three counts of violating the motor vehicle code for impermissible use of personal information. She faces between 1 and 5 years in jail on each count.
She has been given a $10,000 personal bond. Her preliminary exam is scheduled for June 11.
