Pa. Police Department Won't Allow Officers to Be Recorded
Officer walks away and refuses to take report
A Pennsylvania cop responding to a report of an accident refused to talk to the citizen unless his friend turned off the camera.
The citizen insisted on his friend recording, so Lancaster police officer Philip Bernot walked back to his car and drove off, refusing to take the report.
The citizen said he called the desk sergeant to complain, but was told it is a departmental policy not to be recorded.
