Cop Watch app records police-citizen interactions | Toronto Star
By: Antonia Zerbisias Feature Writer, Published on Tue Jan 28 2014

Cop Watch Toronto , which was released last week on iTunes.

“Sadly, it’s been years and years of seeing violence in (the black) community,” he said. “Only the fatal ones get serious media attention, but there are dozens and dozens of incidents that happen that get no attention at all — but they are just as traumatic to the people involved.”

The app, which costs 99 cents, is not a new concept. In the U.S. last year, similar apps, such as “ Stop and Frisk Watch ” for New Yorkers, have been released.

Although the aims are the same as Cop Watch Toronto, the operation is not. What Cop Watch does is begin shooting automatically once it’s opened, and as soon as recording is stopped, instantly uploads to YouTube. At the same time, an email is sent to the community-based Network for the Elimination of Police Violence , with the videographer’s location and an URL for the video.
