NSW Police get new powers to record conversations

Be careful what you say to that nice NSW highway patrol officer next time he has a chat to you, chances are you're being recorded. Link below

Re: NSW Police get new powers to record conversations

I wonder how long it'll be until Victorian police are granted the same thing, after all, I'm sure that it could open up another revenue stream, and we all know how much the Victorian government loves any way it can get money out of us motorists...

Careful, the next thing these Nazis might try is to take away our right to silence.

Cheers, Danny

Re: NSW Police get new powers to record conversations

I like this bit
"Motorists recorded on ICV will be able to view the video - which will be stored for at least two years - at police stations"

If there's no charge, go and watch it every week.....

Re: NSW Police get new powers to record conversations

Sorry I fail ton see what the issue is - appart from going back on your word of what you said to the police officer at the time the event occurred.

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"

The issue with it is the police no longer have to ask your permission, and also, as the police are the ones in control of the recording they can determine wether you are recorded...
The recodring devices won't be running all the time, they will only record when lights/siren are activated and then run for a certain time period. If a cop decides to give you a hard time they can pull you up using a GD vehicle that won't have cameras, or pull alongside and gesture for you to pull over..

Reminds me of this: http://www.fordforums.com/f126/police-will-able-access-stored-voice-mail-email-mobile-phone-text-messages-92544/#post1011421

I just hope none of this is abused or tampered with, but being the cynical bastard I am, I think it will not be a matter of if, but when...
