ACLU App Lets Users Record Police Stops
The New Jersey branch of the ACLU has a new smartphone app says the ACLU’s Alexander Shalom.
The app lets users record audio and video discretely with a stealth mode that hides the fact that the recording is happening.
Shalom said officers would also have a harder time deleting the recorded incidents.
“Unlike a recording that’s just done in the standard camera or video mode on someone’s telephone, it’s a little more complicated to find these files and delete them. So it can theoretically be done but it would take a far more tech-savvy police officer to do it,” Shalom said.
