Denver Police Agree to First Amendment Training
Should recording police count as free speech?
In July of 2018, investigative reporter Susan Greene filmed an interaction between Denver police and a naked, handcuffed man. Police asked Greene to stop recording, and when she refused, they seized her phone, handcuffed her, and pushed her into a police car. The interaction was captured on police body cam footage.
The right to record police officers have been repeatedly upheld by the courts as an essential element of free speech and free press.
After a 7 month internal investigation, the Denver Police Department agreed to provide First Amendment training for their officers, specifically conceding the right to photograph and record in public.
Is this a win for free speech? Let us know in the comments below.
