Check this out: the ACLU of Northern California just launched a new Mobile Justice app, a cool new tool that helps you to film and document encounters with police officers.
With a simple tap of your touch screen, the Mobile Justice App will help you to hold police accountable by recording them when they step over the line. When you're done recording, the app will upload the video automatically to a secure server online where the ACLU can review it. That way if a police officer confiscates your phone or deletes your video, your evidence will still be preserved.
The app also includes a "Know Your Rights" section to help you know your rights when taking video of police officers in public places.
