  • Taking photos of people detained

    Hey all. I wanted to hear from some other departments on your policy and procedure for taking photographs of people you have detained. My former agency never took photos of people we stop for CVC or reasonable suspicion. My current agency however is very active in doing that. The photos end up in our crime analysis bulletins and nothing else.

      They are on video from patrol and they use a handheld device for all tickets and FIs and capture a photo.
      Where'd you learn that, Cheech? Drug school?

        EXCELLENT source of intelligence material
        Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

          We photograph all suspected gang members and gang-related tats and add them to our internal database. It's been an invaluable resource for our gang task force.

            Our department's stance is basically - If we have a legal right to be somewhere, then we have the ability to take pictures and/or record you. The person is already recorded on my body-worn camera.

            The only thing I would personally not do is take pictures of someone on my personal phone. I would stick with department issued cameras/phones.

              ^^^^This.

              If you're smart, don't even carry a personal phone with you on duty. Your phone, and all its contents, are discoverable in the case you are sued. But they can only discover things that they can tie a nexus to your duty. If your practice is to never have your personal phone on you while working, it is no longer discoverable. The last time I was sued in federal court, this became an issue. Fortunately, the case was dismissed before I had to turn over my phone.

                I'm having fun sitting here thinking about the poo-storm that would result from our agency even suggesting officers stop carrying their personal phones on duty.
