Thread: Video/ audio recording police
My google-fu is failing me. Does anyone know of a cite to the law about recording people/police in public in Minnesota? I need to know if I can record police legally.

They CAN ask you to move further away from a scene if you are interfering with the performance of their jobs or creating a safety issue.
They CAN ask for your video or audio recording. But, you do NOT need to provide it (with some exceptions). In general, they need a warrant to seize your property.
Many photographers have been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct or disturbing the peace by standing their grounds on this issue.
The Photography is Not a Crime website references instances of Minneapolis police violating users constitutionally guaranteed rights.
In short....You CAN. And, you may be harrassed and jailed for doing so.
