The law allows you to record interactions with police in public places. But reports of officers confiscating recording devices or deleting video have worried the ACLU. That's why the nonprofit developed a smart phone app that allows users to record video of police encounters, which get uploaded and saved automatically. It can also alert users when police interactions happen nearby. It debuts in Colorado under the name Mobile Justice Colorado tomorrow.

Denise Maes is Director of Public Policy for the ACLU of Colorado. He spoke with Ryan Warner.
