Just read this story about an american sent to prison for recording police. http://reason.com/archives/2010/12/07/the-war-on-cameras/ Was wondering what is the UK law current position on recording policemen either on film, cameras or voice recorders? Is the law different for one on one situations rather than in a protest for example where obviously the police being filmed by loads of people? What are peoples thoughts on this? I am generally of the opinion that as long as people aren't following the police round with video cameras you should be able to record any interactions between you and the police within premises or on the street. The police record your interviews in a police station so why shouldn't you have a record of your dealings with them. Should you be required to inform them of this action or not?
