Mobile Justice App allows users to send incident videos directly to ACLU of Wisconsin
WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- The ACLU of Wisconsin has a new and improved version of its Mobile Justice app that Wisconsin residents can download.
It has many features, chief of which is the ability to record video and have it sent to the ACLU even if the phone is confiscated or destroyed.
“Video has proven to be an important tool in working against police violence on people of color,” said Chris Ott, executive director of the ACLU of Wisconsin. “Without video, the death of George Floyd would have been just another lie in a police report instead of a nationwide rallying cry for justice. Video unfortunately has not stopped these incidents, but it helps authorities and the general public understand the problem and the need for accountability.”
The app also allows users to add three people who will automatically receive videos recorded, has information tailored to Wisconsin state laws, and allows users to add details including the identification of officers involved and witness contact information.
