The most common misuse reason is people using the system to check out their street or a street with a house they want to buy. I.e information that's not identifying anyone - they want to see if it's a bad area, etc.

So this will result in a disciplinary with most probably s formal written warning. They could also be charged, but that only usually happens where there's information being shared out with such as to crime groups, etc.
