Ken Whitehouse, the director of research and media relations for the Davidson County District Attorney’s Office, has resigned amid growing pressure from police, who curtailed his access to police databases after he provided a rape incident report to a local television station. Nashville News 2 reports that an internal audit by the police department found that Whitehouse ran several hundred searches in a database that includes incident reports, arrest information, mug shots and court documents. Whitehouse yesterday submitted a resignation letter, in which he admits violating user agreements between the DA’s office and other law enforcement agencies regarding access to data. The Tennessean has a copy of the letter.
