GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – Justice could be right in your reach now that the ACLU has released an app that is designed to record police activity.
The free app named “Mobile Justice NC” has three main functions: record, witness, and report.
The record function initiates your phone’s camera, which immediately sends an incident report to the ACLU. The witness function turns on your phone’s GPS. And the report function prompts the incident report, even if you did not video the police interaction.
“If law enforcement agencies and the government are not going to be transparent with what happened and share footage with the public, it is often up to citizens,” said Mike Meno, of ACLU North Carolina.
The last time the ACLU checked, more than 10,000 people in North Carolina downloaded the app.
