(KTVM) Several employees of Montana's Butte-Silver Bow Health Department are under investigation after a motion-activated camera was discovered in their offices.
According to the county, the employees were reportedly trying to catch paranormal activity, but the incident has raised concerns about potential privacy violations.
"The location of the camera that was recovered was in an unoccupied area where patients or clients were not entering," said Butte Chief Executive Matt Vincent.
The county's human resource office is investigating the matter, and they are taking it very seriously.
"Because it was at the Health Department," explained Vincent, "there's HIPPA requirements, Health Information Privacy Protection Act, that certainly raises it to a much higher level of concern."
