Slow response to camera in women’s toilet at Fire Station

By 8 June 2014 2

A male firefighter who placed a camera in the women’s toilets of a southside station was allowed to remain at work with his victim for months as authorities struggled to deal with the incident, according to the Canberra Times.

The pen camera was discovered by a female firefighter as she was in the toilet at the station in May 2011.

Although the incident was reported through the ACT Fire Brigade, it took months before any decision was made to investigate (yes, that’s investigate).

It wasn’t until seven months after the initial report that firefighters on the shift in question were contacted and advised that it was being investigated. This prompted the person responsible to admit responsibility.

He was suspended and left the service in 2012, although it is understood he received a payout as part of a confidential agreement with the government.
