“People reported grabbing strips of paper that included social security numbers and information about undercover detectives.”

Newsday notes the records showed an emblem of the Nassau County Police Department. Shreds of paper revealed personal information of detectives’ families, records of events and license plate numbers.

Fox News reports the paper even included information about Mitt Romney’s motorcade routes. Macy’s has denied being the source of the confidential confetti.

“During the Parade it is not unusual for spectators to bring and throw their own confetti in the direction of Parade participants from the sidelines ... even from buildings along portions of the route.”

The Nassau County Police Department says it is now reviewing its procedures for getting rid of sensitive documents.
