ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico State Police chief is distancing the department from what he says is a false Facebook page created in the agency’s name that bears a swastika as its profile photo.

State Police Chief Pete Kassetas says the page is in no way affiliated with the agency. He also says it “distorts and misrepresents” New Mexico State Police.

Local news outlets in Albuquerque brought the page to the state polices’ attention. Kassetas says the agency has reported the “offensive page” to Facebook, requesting the social media company remove it.

The official New Mexico State Police page on Facebook has an image of the agency’s triangle shape logo for its profile photo.
