Las Vegas’ fire chief announced a plan about five months ago to install surveillance camera at fire stations throughout the city amid allegations of sex inside firehouses.
The installation of those cameras has begun, as city officials investigate another complaint alleging sexual activity in a firehouse last month. City of Las Vegas officials are investigating allegations that a firefighter violated department rules by having sex at a fire station, mere months after claims of widespread sexual misconduct by personnel. A document obtained by the Review-Journal, which outlines the allegations, says some supervisors tried to cover up the rendezvous by intimidating a whistleblower.
Fire Chief William McDonald announced plans to put in surveillance cameras at a May 4 news conference, called after the Las Vegas Review-Journal inquired about claims by a former EMT that orgies are quite common in the firehouses.
Former Fire Capt. Richard Loughry was charged In April with having sex with a 15-year-old prostitute inside Station 47, the first firehouse to be outfitted with cameras.
