EQUIPMENT REPAIRMAN RESIGNED FOR TAMPERING WITH HIS AMTRAK VEHICLE CAMERA
An Amtrak Maintenance of Way Equipment Repairman, based in Rensselaer, New York, violated company policy by regularly disabling the Lytx camera in his company-owned vehicle by replacing a functioning fuse in the camera with a blown one.
The repairman admitted to disabling the camera, as well as covering the camera with a towel on a regular basis during the entire duration of his overnight shifts. During our interview with the employee, we also found inappropriate photographs on his company-owned mobile device. The employee resigned in lieu of his disciplinary hearing on March 1, 2023.
