The Utah attorney general's office will suspend use of a massive surveillance system after a news report showed that the founder of the company behind the effort was once an active participant in a white supremacist group and was involved in the shooting of a synagogue.

The University of Utah also said Tuesday it would suspend its contract with Banjo, which has business deals with several cities and police departments across the state.

An official with Utah Department of Public Safety said that agency had launched a review of its relationship with the Park City-based firm in light of the reports.
