  • Deb Roschen goes through notebooks of evidence of how authorities accessed information about her through law enforcement databases, during an interview in Rochester, Minn., on July 11, 2016.

The searches were in retaliation for questioning county spending and sheriff’s programs, she says.

    An Associated Press investigation found police officers across the country abuse sensitive law enforcement databases to get information on romantic partners, business associates, neighbors, journalists and others for reasons totally unrelated to police work.
