MADISON, Wis. (AP) – The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department has fired a veteran captain after an internal investigation revealed he used department cameras to take hundreds of inappropriate photos of department employees and members of the public.

Agency spokesman Marc Lovicott said 17-year department veteran Peter Ystenes was fired on March 12. Lovicott says an internal investigation is still ongoing and detectives are trying to identify and contact people in the photos to ask about what action they would like to see taken.

Lovicott declined to describe the photos beyond saying they were inappropriate and they didn’t involve any nudity.

No residential listing could be found for Ystenes.
