NEWARK – 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.
“This app provides an essential tool for police accountability,” said ACLU-NJ Executive Director Deborah Jacobs.“Too often incidents of serious misconduct go unreported because citizens don’t feel that they will be believed. Here, the technology empowers citizens to place a check on police power directly.” In light of the frequency of altercations between citizens and seasonal police at the shore, the ACLU-NJ released the App in time for the July 4th holiday.
The Android “Police Tape” app records video and audio discreetly, disappearing from the screen once the recording begins to prevent any attempt by police to squelch the recording. In addition to keeping a copy on the phone itself, the user can choose to send it to the ACLU-NJ for backup storage and analysis of possible civil liberties violations.
A version awaiting approval from Apple will be available later this summer in the App Store for iOs to audio record encounters with police.
The popularity of cellphones with video capabilities has raised legal questions about the rights of citizens to record in public. Fortunately, the courts have sided with citizens. In May 2012, a federal appeals court struck down an Illinois law that had made it illegal for citizens to record police officers on-duty. Also in May 2012, the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice released a letter affirming the constitutional rights to record the police in public. These two developments came on the heels of a landmark ruling in August 2011, which recognized the right of citizens to record police officers after a Massachusetts man in Boston Common was wrongfully arrested for filming an interaction with a police officer.
“Historically, vivid images of police mistreating citizens have seared our public consciousness and in some cases spurred important changes,” said ACLU-NJ Policy Counsel Alexander Shalom.“Photos and video are critical to ensuring police accountability and police should know that the eyes of the public are on them at all times.”

People should be allowed to record on duty police because when they do these things they need to be held accountable. If they do everything on the up and up there's no reason at all for them to worry about being recorded. In fact, you'd think they'd like the fact that people can now record what they do (if they are straight laced) because that will do away with false accusations. Unfortunately, we know to well that while many cops are good, honest people who are just trying to uphold our laws and keep peace, there are some who abuse their power. They are the ones who need to know that there will be consequences when they abuse that power. Maybe then the good policemen will be able to do their jobs and honest citizens can sleep better at night.

I read and looked at this justice for christophers page and all the photos disgust me, that should be enough evidence to prove them cops murdered this man. Hell even if he swallowed dope, why did they beat him so bad. I believe it too, the police always use excessive force

Ben you have got nobody fooled. Justice was not served. A man lost his life and you call that justice? God said thou shalt not kill. I'm tired of your dumb posts defending you and your goons. You shouldn't be so quick to judge people when hpd act like criminals too

I went to my husbands business late one evening to grab his cell phone..saw a car pull up behind mine, walked out to have a gun pointed to my forehead...why are you here? Why is the door open on your car? What is in your hand?... Scariest moment of my entire life. Hpd is a joke.

Police and Governments kill more people than any disease, accidents, serial killers, robbery, domestic violence.

I'm in no way disrespecting a death.. But I read the fb page and some of the captions of the photos are bogus. You can bruise from an OD. If you have internal bleeding, you can cough blood, which would make the splatter.

Those pics are from the morgue in Charleston West Virginia, autopsy report says Chris never had enough drugs in him to be fatal and the manner of death was unknown, due to head and chest with traumatic injuries. .. I was offfered blood money, but that was to shut me up, I can't save Chris but maybe, I can save you or one you love. .. Our lives are in danger in West Virginia. Stop wearing blinders and wear your camera at all times. ..

... Appreciate your promise, but it's going to take people who are in charge to stop these crimes of out of control law enforcement agencies and that Buddie system with blinders are the ones being paid and praised,... People are told to look the other way... What type of officer would pull a male penis? HPD's Capt.Pete Bowen called penis pulling a form of disciplenary actio, under oath in Court TV in 2010. Bowen is in the Mount Olive Corrections in Smithers Wedt Virginia, for rapinyoung kids as he served the public of over 30 years... Why didn't these parents of ALL of those young boys of numerous families? I feel that all mighty dollar makes people sell their own children here in Cabell C.o. Wedt Virginia, or they are living in fear of their own lives, like me... I fear my cops,

West Virginia has too many of these crimes done to cover up their own crimes in office. We are waiting on this story to end in victory. Thank you Watch Dog
