The American Civil Liberties Union plans to unveil a smartphone app which it says allows users to send videos to the organization when they believe law enforcement officers are violating civil rights.

A news conference to provide details of the free app is scheduled for Tuesday at 10 a.m. at North Carolina Advocates for Justice.

Mobile Justice apps have been released by ACLU state affiliates across the country, including those in California, Michigan, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, and Oregon. A statement from the North Carolina chapter says other ACLU state affiliates plan to release their own versions later this year.

The ACLU says the apps are modeled after the New York Civil Liberties Union’s Stop and Frisk app.
