Police Photography

I wrote a long depressing blogpost, but a get in trouble for posting such things, so instead I'm giving a great deal of thought to putting together a database of incidents where photographers have been detained by the police for taking photos in public spaces.

This would be a database with a difference, it would include details of the police officers involved, their badge numbers and photo.

I understand the Association Chief Police Officers believe that with budget cuts they'll have to reduce the numbers of police officers. If the police are devoting time to stopping people who aren't breaking the law then clearly there's room for cuts, and we can help identify the officers who can go.
