Interior Investigates Voyeurism at Grand Canyon

Multiple incidents suspected in two-year span.

The Department of the Interior announced last week that the FBI would be investigating voyeurism in the backcountry of Grand Canyon National Park. Park visitors in September 2020 reported a maintenance worker that they noticed recording them while using the bathroom. The National Parks Service immediately fired the worker, but the individual was suspected to have conducted multiple acts of voyeurism between November 2018 and September 2020.

“NPS is dedicated to ensuring every victim of or witness to a crime that occurs in a national park is treated with dignity and respect, that they are informed of their legal rights, and provided with the support and services to which they are entitled,” the Interior Department spokesperson stated. “To support the victims of these incidents, NPS has partnered with the FBI Victim Services Division to connect victims with available services.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For National Parks Service officials as they cooperate with the investigation.
  • That the actions of the agents of the FBI would help make the parks safer.
  • For the Department of the Interior in their efforts to ensure people’s safety at the national parks.
