CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The Hamilton County Sheriff's Department is investigating whether a deputy looked up information not authorized by the department -- a violation of its policy -- for independent sheriff's candidate Tim Akins, officials said.

Officials familiar with sheriff's department operations said Deputy Ann Dillard, a booking officer at the county jail, was asked by Mr. Akins, a former staff sergeant in the sheriff's department who oversaw booking in the jail, to use a federal database to pull up information not related to departmental work.
