The ACLU of New Jersey has launched an app for the Android, with an i-Phone compatible app in the works, that enables the user to discreetly record police stops. Once the appropriate button is pressed the screen clears so that if you are searched the policeman will not know the device is in recording mode. Once the recording is complete, it is sent to the ACLU-NJ where it is reviewed for civil rights violations.
The app has three options: There’s a “Know Your Rights” button that tells you your rights if you encounter the police in your home, in your car, or on the street. There are two more buttons that record audio and video.
