For better or worse, civilians with a phone are regularly recording you doing your job. But what, specifically, are the rights of civilians who record you? As an officer of the law, when do you have the ability to lawfully restrict their ability to do so?

In this two-hour webinar, we will explore the legal liability issues related to civilian recordings of law enforcement officers and what agencies can do to prepare their officers to perform their duties effectively while also respecting civilians’ lawful right to record in particular circumstances.

  • The courts’ recognition of a civilian’s constitutional right to record
  • Limits on the right to record—reasonable time, place and manner
  • Taking the cell phone out of the equation—easier said than done
  • Back to basics re: hindering and opposing laws
  • Preparing officers for the new reality of heightened transparency
