MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - Morton County sheriff’s officials say some oil pipeline protesters are releasing personal information about law enforcement officers in an attempt to harass them and their families.

The sheriff’s department says the tactic is known as “doxing” and has been used by professional protests groups like “Anonymous.” WDAY (https://bit.ly/2fbk69h ) reports the personal information in one case includes the home address of a Bismarck police officer.

Bismarck Police Chief Dan Donlin says “this type of activity is not peaceful,” because it not only involves officers, but their families as well.
