UW police accuse former captain of taking secret pictures of women

 MADISON -- Peter Ystenes used to be one of the top cops in the UW-Madison Police Department, now he's the target of a multi-department investigation

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">\"That's sick, that's disgusting. I can't believe someone's doing that.\" said Heidi Wiley, a Madison resident.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">The department sent Ystenes a letter saying, \"the total number of photos taken by you are in the thousands… all of these were without the apparent knowledge of those who were photographed or recorded.\"

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">\"I've gone on my bike in my sports bra down the road. If there's a picture out there like that, I'd like to know.\" Wiley said.


10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">Of the thousands of pictures and videos Ystenes secretly took, his termination letter says hundreds of them came from a second story office window taking pictures of women walking along this sidewalk, which is just across the street from Camp Randall Stadium.

10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">Polices say, Ystenes didn't stick taking pictures from his office window, he followed women in stores, and even targeted his own co-workers.


10.0pt;font-family:\"Microsoft Sans Serif\",\"sans-serif\"\">The letter says  \"…you took video images of clothed female university employees under tables during meetings.\"
