“New Yorkers made more than 250 complaints within a three- year period about police officers they claim tried to stop them from filming encounters with law enforcement by threatening to arrest them or knocking their phones out of their hands, among other methods, a report released by the Civilian Complaint Review Board on Wednesday says.
Proving that an officer interfered with a civilian’s right to record police encounters is challenging though, according to a spokesman for the board, an independent agency that investigates complaints against city police officers.
Of the 257 complaints the CCRB investigated and closed between Jan. 1, 2014, and Dec. 31, 2016, only 96 were substantiated. The majority of complaints — 144 cases — were unsubstantiated, meaning there was not enough evidence to determine if the officer interfered.”*
