GLEN BURNIE, Md. (WUSA) -- Anne Arundel County police say an officer who placed a camera in the boys' bathroom at Glen Burnie High School will not be criminally charged. Officials do say, however, that an administrative investigation continues in relation to this case.
In March, a 14-year veteran of the department was placed on administrative leave and his police powers were suspended after a student discovered the camera placed in a top corner of the restroom.
Tuesday, police say their investigation showed that the camera was not operational and "was not used to record, store, or transmit any images or sound."
Police indicated that the officer used the camera as a preventative type of device, but would not comment about whether any suspected activities in the bathroom prompted the officer's action.
Police officials say that no criminal laws were violated, so the officer will not be criminally charged.
