New York Civil Liberties Union "Stop and Frisk" App

There is a new app on the way to assist with arrest documentation.  It is modeled after the Occupy Wall Street app "I'm Getting Arrested," developed last year by Brooklyn-based Jason Van Anden.

"The New York Civil Liberties Union is arming city residents and visitors with an app called Stop and Frisk Watch that records video, audio and GPS data. The civil rights defender group urges citizens to chronicle illegal stops, racial profiling and inappropriate searches by police officers.
The Stop and Frisk Watch is available for free on Google Play. The iOS app will be available by the end of July, says the NYCLU."
