We all cringe when we see the viral video of a First Amendment auditor baiting a police officer and they fall for it. Many police officers lack training on the First Amendment and what citizens are entitled to do. While citizens are allowed to exercise a right, they are not entitled to break a law to do it. This class explains when First Amendment encounters violate the law.

It covers:

  • Citizens recording in public
  • Citizens recording the police
  • When citizens are not entitled to record
  • When recording the police constitutes an offense
  • When an officer can request identification
  • Explaining to officers that New Jersey IS NOT a “Stop and Identify” state and that simply failing to identify oneself is not a violation
