    Mickey Osterreicher and Mike Parker are a unique team presenting an informative and lively program about the rights and limitations of journalists and citizens to photograph and record police officers performing their official duties in public. The discussion will include First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendment rights, search and seizure, exigent circumstances, qualified immunity, media-crowd management, and prohibitions against the destruction or deletion of files and recordings, all within the framework of departmental policies. A discussion of case law supporting these rights tempered by valid time, place, and manner restrictions will include the most recent cases and rulings as well as compliance with U.S. Department of Justice (USDOJ) Statements of Interest.


    During this webinar, the presenters will discuss:

    • the need for clear, written policies covering all aspects of police-press interaction coupled with robust and continuous training
    • the importance of bring journalists & officers together for joint meetings to help foster open lines of communication
    • Improved understanding of each other’s concerns, roles, and responsibilities to help press and police perform their societal functions during tense moments in the community and nation.
