Is it Legal to Film Police?

It is completely legal to film police in public places, such as on the streets, in shops, shopping centres, malls, restaurants, licensed venues and other places members of the public are allowed to enter without permission from the owners.

In fact filming police serves the public interest by ensuring those who swear to uphold the law remain accountable and don’t overstep their powers, but it’s also important to be aware that hindering police in the execution of their duties amounts to an offence. So keep your distance and don’t interfere with their actions.

The footage you record can be used in court and ensure there’s an accurate record of what actually occurred rather than what police claim happened.
