June 14, 2018 06:59 PM

Monroe County Clerk Adam Bello says that he's made immediate policy changes after News10NBC's exclusive investigation uncovered documents containing personal information in the dumpsters near the DMV offices in Henrietta and Irondequoit.

All paper documents are now shredded and standardized training has been established.

In addition, credit monitoring and fraud protection services have been offered to the 88 people who had their personal information on forms disposed of illegally. 

"...We were able to forensically go back through and look at what happened, what were those forms and really identify who they were," stated Bello. "We have no evidence that their information was used improperly or anything like that." 

Bello previously told News10NBC that what happened was a mistake based on different training under a different administration.

On Thursday, Bello told News10NBC that he also uncovered a 2014 audit by the DMV that left concerns unaddressed.

Bello's office is now working with the Monroe County Sheriff's Office for a full security review.
