Not sure if this is the correct forum, but you always seem like a knowledgeable bunch!
I've had a (verifiable) e-mail from a Police Officer here in the UK politely requesting information about some of my forum members who may be able to help them with their inquiries into a crime committed in our local area.
Without doing any research, i'm assuming I can hand over the basic details I have which are simply the user's name and e-mail address (and IP) without requesting Data Protection Clearance or anything like that?
Obviously i'm keen to co-operate, but don't want to be strung up by the members when they inevitably ask how their information was obtained.
n.b. it's not a nefarious forum by any means, just local interest, so I've no idea what they're referring to at present.
