Detroit Police Department Assistant Chief James White says punishment may be handed out after bra sizes of female officers were accidentally emailed to officers.
The Detroit Police Department was caught with its pants down Monday after admitting an email containing bra sizes of its female officers was accidentally sent out to cops.
The women had provided their height, weight and cup sizes for bulletproof vests that they would be issued, the Fox affiliate in Detroit reported.
“Unfortunately and embarrassingly, the cup sizes of the females were listed on that third page, and it was really just a clerical error,” DPD Assistant Chief James White told WJBK.
It was Commander Dwayne Love’s job to inform the officers that the vests were ready to be picked up, White said. An email containing an Excel spreadsheet was forwarded first to commanders, then to supervisors and finally to officers, the station reported. The spreadsheet included the officers’ height, weight — and cup sizes.

The cup sizes were for bulletproof vests that the women officers were to be issued.
Love could be facing discipline for the gaffe.
“Conscientious, very hard-working command officer,” White said of Love. “However, it’s an embarrassing situation, and I’m going to be addressing the issue formally with him over the next couple weeks.”
Some of the female officers plan to file grievances againat the department, WJBK reported.
