State law-enforcement officials are investigating a security breach at
the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice that could affect the
identities of more than 100,000 DJJ employees and youth offenders,
state officials said Friday.

The DJJ reported the breach to the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Friday after initially reporting the incident on Jan. 2 to
the Tallahassee Police Department, according to a DJJ statement. The
breach was reported to the FDLE due to the possibility of identity
theft, the statement said.

According to the statement, a mobile device containing youth and
employee records was recently taken. The device, which was taken from
a secure DJJ office, was not encrypted or password-protected.

Agency officials said that more than 100,000 records may have been
compromised and the agency is trying to determine which individuals
have been affected, the statement said.
