WAUKESHA — A hidden camera was found in a Swimtastic Swim School locker room in Waukesha.

The swimming school released a statement after the matter was made public.

"Swimtastic is absolutely committed to providing a safe environment for our team of instructors and our clients. A situation was brought to our attention in which a hidden camera may have been planted in our employee-only dressing room. We have taken all measures to act swiftly on this concerning allegation and with proper authorities. We immediately contacted the Waukesha Police Department and have been in full cooperation with their investigation. We are also undergoing a full internal investigation. Swimtastic adheres to a strict zero-tolerance policy for any actions of misconduct. It is important that I relay that our entire facility has been inspected and there is no evidence that this took place anywhere besides the employee-only dressing room which is not accessible to the public. As the authorities keep us apprised of their investigation, we will continue to take appropriate and immediate action as needed."

A similar event happened in October, 2013.

Michael Coyle, a swim coach, was caught installing a camera in an employee bathroom. TODAY'S TMJ4 reported the Coyle recorded a 16-year-old and 18-year-old changing.

The identity of the person who placed the camera in the locker room most recently has not been released. It is unknown if anyone was recorded on the camera.
