The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has a new app out called Police Tape that is designed to allow citizens to covertly record the police. The app hides itself from casual inspection when activated and has a mode that sends its recording to an ACLU-operated server, overriding police seizure and deletion.
Citizens can hold police accountable in the palms of their hands with “Police Tape,” a smartphone application from the ACLU of New Jersey that allows people to securely and discreetly record and store interactions with police, as well as provide legal information about citizens’ rights when interacting with the police. Thanks to the generosity of app developer OpenWatch, the ACLU-NJ is providing Police Tape to the public free of charge. Source
