Crucial To Be in the Streets

WE DO NOT WISH TO INTERFERE,
WE SIMPLY WANT TO OBSERVE
We ALL Have a Right to Observe Police Activity
The right to watch is constitutionally protected activity based on our right to “freedom of assembly” and the people have a right to videotape—if cops are in a public place, cops don’t have a ‘reasonable expectation of privacy’.

We believe that it is crucial to be in the streets letting the police know that the PEOPLE will hold them accountable for their behavior in the community.

We believe that if everyone would STOP, WATCH, OBSERVE (with video, cameras, note taking, or even just watching overtly) police activity, it will prevent police brutality and let the police know that we will not turn a blind eye.  We can work to build a strong, compassionate community by looking out for all people when they are encountered by police.

 

 

CopWatch is a grassroots effort to stop oppressive, abusive police activity.

CopWatch is also dedicated to supporting victims of police abuse, creating community alternatives to the police, and providing education and trainings. We share information with people about ‘knowing your rights’, how to assert them (so we don’t lose ‘em) to protect ourselves and each other.

 

 

Please contact CopWatch for more information or to share your story.
