An Anne Arundel County police officer who installed a camera in a high-school bathroom without permission will not be criminally charged, police said.

A student found the camera in a men's bathroom at Glen Burnie High School on March 20. The camera was removed, and police and school employees searched the rest of the school and did not find any other unauthorized cameras, according to Anne Arundel County police.

An investigation found that a 14-year veteran of the police department installed the camera without informing the police department or the school system about what he was doing. But on Tuesday, police said that no criminal laws were violated and that the camera did not record, store or transmit any images or sound.

The officer remains on leave because the police department is continuing to conduct an administrative investigation into the incident.
