Not an official department, but RR management and law enforcement are quite familiar with online locations to go digging if a situation warrants.

The best policy as a railfan is if you think you've taken a photo that could cause an issue, don't post it. If you happen to get tp'd by a crew, laugh and get over it. The fact is that 90% of us would be fired in a month or less if our day to day dealings were photographed without our complete knowledge and those photos be available for viewing by our direct management.
