In cases where a person’s civil rights are violated by the police or another governmental agency, it is important to preserve evidence of the violation for use in court later.  A variety of smartphone apps now exist for this very purpose.Civil rights violations are a serious problem.  Each year, citizens suffer great harm and lose their lives at the hands of police and other government employees who abuse their powers.  Putting a stop to such abuse is the only way to save future people from being victimized, and to right the wrong that was committed.

Puryear Law offers free in-office consultations, as well as emergency after-hours consultations by phone for people with cases in Iowa and Illinois. See our consultation options.

Doing so requires evidence, as cases where is is only the word of a police officer against a single victim can be very difficult to prove in court.  Modern technology provides a solution in the form of the many smartphone apps that now exist to record evidence during interaction with police.  Below are links to some of those apps:

The laws on recording other people vary from state to state.  However, in both Illinois and Iowa it is lawful for a person to record a traffic stop or other such interaction with the police.
