PHILADELPHIA — Deputy Commissioner William Blackburn, one of Philly's top cops, allegedly instructed an aide to browse the Police Department's computer personnel files for photos of female officers so that he could select those he'd like to meet, according to court documents obtained by the Daily News.

The former longtime aide, Officer Walter Maiellano, said that Blackburn, 55, would look at the photos, pick out some he wanted to meet and then direct Maiellano to find out where they worked.
