Phoenix, AZ - The city of Phoenix is demanding that Donald Trump’s campaign stop using the image of Phoenix police officers in a campaign advertisement.

The city sent a cease-and-desist letter Thursday. It says the campaign violated federal and state law by using copyrighted material, including images of officers in uniform and at work.

The ad features images of uniformed officers greeting Trump and shaking his hand.

City Attorney Brad Holm said in the letter that the advertisement “unmistakably and wrongfully” suggests that Phoenix and its officers support Trump’s campaign.

The state’s campaign chairman, Phil Lovas, said he cannot comment on the letter because he has not seen it.
