Linked from atop the copblock.org homepage is a new page – Film The Police, which was created to lessen the learning curve associated with that act.
The page is structured by the following headings:
- Why Film The Police?
- When Filming The Police
- If The Police Engage
- No Victim, No Crime
- Legislation related to Recording Video and Audio
- The Tech
- Recovering Deleted Footage

Just imagine if at every police stop, every time someone was stopped and frisked or pulled over in their car, or visited at home, those nearby felt compelled to stop and film the police. That, more than any piece of legislation or policy change or new leadership, would help to curtail out of control police employees. Such a reality would undoubtedly be welcomed by those who already act in the right, as it would help to hold accountable those in the wrong.
