  • The American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey has released an Android application that’s meant to be used by people who want to keep track of police activity and record it on their devices. The thing is that they’ll do the recording without the authorities knowing it, so they can really figure out what’s going on.

    The software is called Police Tape and allows the user to record video and audio on the fly. What’s nice is that the app is able to hide on the phone and disappears from the screen once it starts recording. It can also send a copy of the recording to the ACLU for backup storage and analysis to what violations it brings to the average citizen. What’s really nice is that the app itself and its existence is reason enough for the police to be nicer to you and not surpass the limits of the law.

    There’s also another app out there called Stop and Frisk Watch, that does the same thing and it stops filming when the device is shaken.  What’s also cool is that the software also alerts other app users in the area that are recording police activity. The purpose here is tracking down police brutality and misconduct, although I’m not sure how helpful it is nowadays, especially if the policemen know about the app. You can download the app from here.
