No police officer or fireman shall be required or requested
for purposes of job assignment or other personnel action to
disclose any item of his property, income, assets, source of
income, debts or personal or domestic expenditures unless such

assigning the police officer to a specialized unit in which there
is a strong possibility that bribes or other improper inducements
might be offered.
