During a Police incident, if you arent a party, you have to be far enough away as not to " wire tap " the the parties involved, and you can be requested to turn off the camera, which you have to comply.
However, if you are a party to the police incident, you can film both the officer and all parties involved as long as you are involved in the incident.
Remember, some states require the consent of all parties being filmed, otherwise, you have to turn the camera off if requested.
Has anyone looked up the laws of the state this is being filmed in?edit on 16-4-2013 by milkyway12 because: (no reason given)
Twelve states-California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland,Massachusetts,Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire,Pennsylvania,and Washington-require the consent of all parties foryou to record aconversation.
However, all but 2 of these states-Massachusetts and Illinois-have an "expectation of privacy provision" to their all-party laws thatcourts have ruled does not apply to on-duty police (oranyone in public). In other words,it's technically legal in those 48states to openly recordon-duty police.
