SEATTLE (AP) - A computer programmer who was hired by the Seattle police after inundating the department with hundreds of broad-reaching public-records requests has quit his job, promptly sending 200 more requests after his resignation.

The Seattle Times reports (https://bit.ly/1Pa6QwT ) that 25-year-old Timothy Clemans texted his resignation to Chief Operating Officer Mike Wagners Thursday, citing personality conflicts and a failure by the department to embrace technology.

Within hours of his resignation, Clemans filed more than 200 public-disclosure requests for information from the department asking for audio and video images from patrol-car cameras and 911 center recordings.

He says he plans to put the images and recordings on a website.

Clemans joined the department after a similar deluge of requests in 2014. He helped develop software to automatically redact sensitive images from police-captured videos.
