Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation Affirming the Right to Record Law Enforcement Activity and Other Items


Governor Andrew M. Cuomo  signed legislation (S.3253-A/A.1360) - the 'New Yorker's Right to Monitor Act' - affirming the right of an individual to record law enforcement activity and to maintain custody of that recording and any instruments used to make the recording. 

"Transparency is critical to renewing the community's trust and confidence in our policing systems," Governor Cuomo said. "Stopping police abuse vindicates the overwhelming majority - 99.9 percent - of police who are there to do the right thing, and by making clear that all New Yorkers have the right to record and keep recordings of police activity we can help restore trust in the police-community relationship."
