Re: NSW Police get new powers to record conversations
Voice recording can have advantages towards the public as well.. obviously a copper cant blow their steam at you, because it will be recorded..
A while ago, i was carrying a voice recorder in my car, as i used to be hastled by the cops all the time..
Everytime a copper was gonna go sour on me. I mentioned i'm going to get a voice recorder from the car to record the conversation. sometimes the copper done the same himself..
Of course legally, you have to tell the other parties that you are recording the conversation.. IE, we have to tell the coppers, and they have to tell us they are recording the conversations..
Same reason why when you call a call centre they say "For training and quality reasons, we will be monitoring this conversation, please let the operator know if you dont wish to particpate"
