The U.S. Secret Service has triggered a Philadelphia Police Department probe into why one of its officers used his police car computer on Wednesday to run a criminal background check on President Obama, the Associated Press reported.

The Secret Service notified the police department after learning of the breach from the National Crime Information Center, the wire service reported.

Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey said the department is investigating the matter and the officer faces possible discipline.

Last month, two DeKalb County police officers in Georgia were accused of doing the same thing, the AP reported. They were put on paid administrative leave.
