With the widespread proliferation of cellphone cameras, capable of recording high-quality images along with audio and video, as well as the increasing deployment of police bodycams, everybody is documenting everything and everyone.

This webinar presents a basic understanding of constitutional rights and limitations of journalists and citizens when covering stories in public places. One goal is to foster improved police-press- public relations in an era when most needed. It will include constructive discussion of the rights and responsibilities of journalists, the public and police; and encourage greater respect for the roles each plays.

The webinar also provides answers and suggest solutions to challenges faced daily by journalists in dealing with law enforcement, first-responders and demonstrators regarding those rights.

This webinar was originally broadcast on June 08, 2018. You can watch the replay when you enroll. It will take approximately one hour to complete.

Who should enroll

Anyone who covers protests or high-profile events or stories where police or first-responders are often present (accidents, crimes, fires) will find this webinar extremely helpful. This is true for reporters as well as visual journalists and their editors.
