Public Recording of Police Activities
Recording the actions and activities of police officers in the performance of their public duties is a form of speech protected by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, through which individuals may gather and disseminate information of public concern. This right is extended to video and audio recording of any police activity performed in public or where an individual otherwise has a legal right to be present. In effect, the public has the same rights to record police activities as the press. In this course, you will examine civilian's; interest in recording police activities as well as the laws and limitations surrounding the public's constitutionally held rights.
