CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer is accused of secretly taking pictures of juvenile girls that captured parts of their underwear as they participated in the department's high school academy.
    
Officer Thomas E. Allen is charged with four counts of secretly using a photographic imaging device to view another's body or undergarments and four counts of possessing photographic images in violation of the peeping statute.
    
Police say the charges stemmed from an investigation staffed by 11 detectives which began last October.

According to police detectives, Allen photographed and kept images of teen girls who were participating in Charlotte Police High School Academy events in 2011 and 2013.   

Police spokesman Robert Tufano said Allen took photos through the victims clothing during physical training.

Tufano didn't say what kind of device was used.
    
Allen was hired in March 1996. He's been recommended for dismissal.
