    Questions about being able to record LEO?

    Wonder no longer. I found a site that list the laws of every state regarding the recording of individuals during encounters.

    I do not claim this to be legal advice. However, the laws a posted on this site and can be reviewed as you see fit.

    They left out some specific cases dealing with police.

    Johnson vs. Sequim:

    State vs Flora:

    It's the consensus that when public officials are engaging you in their "public" duty you can record without them being aware of the recording. Especially when it is in a public place.

    Another case that support this line of thinking and how our state views it.

    State vs. Clark
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)
