    I found one that looks like a USB memory stick, I'm thinking put a lanyard on it and hang it around my neck, I don't think anyone would even notice.

    Any opinions?

    Do you have a link to share? I'm looking to pick up a voice recorder. I don't think the old mini-tape one that I have is going to cut it.

    I had the same thought, which is why I purchased this device.

    It comes with a cloth necklace too I believe. It records in .WAV format. It seems to work pretty well so far. Much better then I thought it would for the price.

    That's probably one of it's downfalls. It turns on in about 3 seconds, then you have to hold the record button for about 3 seconds. But - It will easily record for 10+ hours, so you can turn it on before you go.

    Edit to ad: Or the belt buckle and clip it on it... who would think its real if you did not know what it was..

    Do as you wish, but understand that LE does monitor these forums, and they have also been known to turn off any audio recording devices they've discovered while "investigating" OC'ers to "see if they are legal. "

    It is sometimes recommended (when these topics do come up) that the posters keep the info and resources to PM so as not to alert anyone who might have a reason to stop any such recording of a potential encounter.

    Thanks for the info though.

    As long as your not breaking the law I don't see a problem, when you start sneaking around is when trouble can start.

    I do believe I read that recording in public is leagel in this state, if an LEO object's I would think they have something to hide..

    Right. But can they do that, and if they try what could we do? Call 911 and request another cop? If they won't allow the legal recording of the event then that shows bad intentions, what can we do about it?

    this is mine:

    http://amzn.com/B001RB1XW0

    18 hr record time on a AAA battery, records straight to MP3, and is essentially a USB stick. 1GB of memory leaves for PLENTY of room for the recording.

    Also records in stereo with dual microphones, and conceals well if desired.

    It's not a matter of you breaking the law, it's a matter of an LEO possibly breaking the law, and in order to cover his/her a$$ they could find and turn off your recording device.
    Well, If you don't "see a problem", then be sure to notify the officer that you are recording the unlawful detainment and harassment of you, and don't forget to point out to him where the device is, and to also show him how to turn it off.

    Of course they can. They can do anything they want to.

    Hope and pray that they don't do worse, while wishing that they didn't know about the recording device in the first place.

    How you handle things is up to you. However, if you do do this, be sure to let us know how it goes.

    Stop posting about any recording devices, and hope they don't see it in time to turn it off.

    I found one on ebay for $21 with free shipping. I wore it earlier on my walk, hanging from the lanyard, under my shirt. Even under the shirt the sound quality is adequate and a 30 minute file was only 7mb. Running another test now to see how long the battery will last if I start the recorder and leave it be.

    Where do you keep yours? Since it is so light I tethered it to a old dog tag chain and I wear mine around my neck.
