According to an alert distributed to law enforcement executives and sheriffs on Thursday, a police commanding officer in New Mexico returned to his office after attending a conference in Las Vegas to find he was placed on "administrative leave" by political leaders in his jurisdiction, according to a former official from the New Jersey State Police.

Jemez Springs, New Mexico Police Chief Shane Harger was arbitrarily terminated, in part, for his participation in a conference of Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA) in Las Vegas one week ago, according to news stories appearing on Thursday.

Upon return from the conference, the Chief was immediately placed on Administrative Leave and ordered to disband his police department after the Chief signed a pledge and Declaration by CSPOA to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and the Bill of Rights.

The county sheriff, who informed the police chief of his de facto suspension, stated it was due to Harger's “political affiliations.”

While attending the convention, Harger, along with 38 other police officers, signed a declaration affirming their pledge to “obey and observe” the U.S. Constitution, in addition to refusing to carry out unconstitutional orders such as gun confiscation without constitutionally compliant warrants, violations of the 4th amendment without probable cause, detainment or incarceration of citizens without probable cause, or working with the military for domestic law enforcement.

Chief Harger and former Sheriff and current National President of Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, Richard Mack, jointly appeared on the program Infowars Nightly News on Thursday night and discussed this Harger's treatment and its many aspects and ramifications.

Chief Harger today is meeting with other law enforcement officials to discuss this situation and their own terminations and the shuddering of the Jemez Springs Police Department.

Prior to attending the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association conference, Chief Shane Harger claims he was detained and subjected to questioning for approximately 45-minutes at the Albuquerque Airport by TSA agents who refused to allow him to board, even after he identified himself as a peace officer and showed them his police shield and identification card as well as other ID.

The TSA Agents allegedly were made aware of the Harger's plans to attend the conference and questioned him extensively about his attendance and other aspects regarding the conference.
