myself and my wife was watching a program last night on bbc1 called travelers and in the documentary i seen/heard a police woman from scotland telling a young child that they were not allowed to film the police.

this really annoyed me as i know when police programs are on and people dont want to be filmed they always say "we are allowed to film because we are in a public place" but when its the other way around they dont like it.

so last night i emailed tayside police and said...

I am currently watching a program on BBC1 called Traveller's and i have just seen a police woman from your force telling a young child that he couldn't film the police.
Now correct me if i am wrong but when police programs are made in the UK and they are filming the general public and they do not wish to be filmed the police always say “it is a public place we are allowed to film” but when it is your force being filmed it is not allowed.

Can you explain why this is please?

and today i have just got a reply from them saying...

Thank-you for your e-mail. You are absolutely right that police officers can be filmed at any time in a public place and this is something most police officers are acutely aware of and content with. Many of our officers are filmed every day of the week by both the media and members of the public using mobile phones and other android devices. Corrective advice has been given to the officer involved in the incident to which you are referring.

Kind regards,

so i am happy now that she has been put in here place.rant over lol.

I watched that program too and your right good for you.Also the gypsy bloke was right aswell after being moved on from one ground via an eviction notice he was well within his rights to move half a mile up the road to park up .The Police couldn`t be bothered trying for another eviction notice too much paper work for them so tried to con them into believing that the same notice was for up the road aswell anyway good for you for pointing that out to the police june

They've tried it with photographers, even going so far as having arrested some under the anti-terrorism act.

You can film/photograph/record and publish pictures of the police, they may not like it sometimes, but for most it doesn't matter one way or another, and at times can even prove useful.

Impressed that they replied so quickly though, I'm guessing you weren't the only one to have contacted them.
