Police Abuse

It even hides itself so cops are none the wiser


New Jersey residents with Apple devices can now hold police accountable in the palms of their hands, with a newly released Apple version of "Police Tape," a smartphone application from the ACLU of New Jersey. A version for Android was released in July. Police Tape allows people to securely and discreetly record and store interactions with police, as well as better understand their rights during police interactions.

Thanks to the generosity of app developer OpenWatch, the ACLU-NJ is providing Police Tape to the public free of charge.
