ACLU Releases App To Record Police
May 3rd, 2015 | by Kevin James Krotz
The American Civil Liberties Union has developed a new mobile app that allows users to record abusive police behavior easily.
The new app, called Mobile Justice California, was created by the ACLU of California to help citizens record and report police incident and send them to the ACLU’s office. Mobile Justice California not only records video, but gives users a checklist of information about the time and location of the incident. The app will not only help people who have witnessed police injustice, but will surely help the ACLU sort out cases more quickly.
ACLU’s app also includes a Witness function that lets you see incidents nearby, so you can go there in person and be a witness, allowing yourself to be available for testimony at a trial. Recordings done through the app are, by default, sent to the ACLU anonymously, but you can send a follow-up with your information.
