Seven rules for recording the police

Handy tips on staying on the right side of the law while recording police.

I'm a law-and-order guy, but I emphatically support the moral right of all people to record police officers who are acting in their official public capacity. I support the right to record the police because I'm a law-and-order guy.

In a free country, law enforcement officers are our employees, and they are accountable to us, and accurate  documentation of how they are doing the jobs we have hired them to do is a very good thing.

Officers who interfere with citizens exercising their right-- their responsibility to record them-- should face legal consequences themselves.

Transparency in law enforcement protects all honest citizens and public servants.
