S.155 – Officers can’t Stop People from Recording and Taking Pictures of Them
S.155 would protect the right of individuals to record or photograph law enforcement officers while performing their law enforcement duties, provided the officer is in a public place, public view, or a private place where the individual has a right to be present. This would not apply to individuals being arrested.
As law enforcement officers are public servants, citizens have a right to document their official activities. This is a healthy form of accountability that should not result in harassment for the citizens.
