Law enforcement officials are investigating a complaint about an offensive wireless network name in northern New Jersey.     

Teaneck Police Chief Robert Wilson says police were called after someone at the Richard Rodda Community Center reported finding the phrase as the name of an available wireless network on Tuesday.     

Police have not disclosed the offensive phrase. The Daily News reports it was anti-Semitic and racist in nature.      

Wilson says it's being investigated as a possible bias crime.     

The Bergen County Prosecutor's Office computer crime unit is assisting.     

Police say there is no known connection between Tuesday's incident and recent vandalism and a firebombing at Bergen County synagogues.
