IS IT LEGAL TO RECORD THE LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS, WHILE CONDUCTING THEIR DUTIES?
Generally, most courts, which have ruled on videotaping, audiotaping or taking pictures of the law enforcement while conducting their public duties, held that the First Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the People’s Right to record officers. However, recording is not allowed if it is interfering with the officer’s job performance, or otherwise breaks any other law.
The courts' primary rationale is that the First Amendment Rights include the right to freely discuss our governmental activities, freedom of the press and public access to information.
