Protests and the general criminal law
Taking videos and photos
Can I video or take photos of the police in public?
Generally you are free to video or photograph people in public spaces without their consent, including the police. This is protected under the right to “seek information” in the Bill of Rights and is not against the criminal law.
However, you could be charged with obstructing police in the course of their duties if you get in their way.
