This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Cop Block is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goals of police accountability, education of individual rights and the dissemination of effective tactics to utilize while filming police.
We seek to highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges. By documenting police actions – whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources – then calling the police stations involved (ideally while recording and then later sharing your conversation), we can work together to bring about transparency and have a real impact.
In addition to this direct pressure on police departments we want to be an educational resource on institutional changes that would curtail the common rights-violations and unaccountability today by those with badges and a place to showcase different techniques, viewpoints and courses of action.
The Cop Block app provides you with the latest news and podcasts from the Cop Block team, including the Police Accountability Report.
What's New in Version 1.3
Bug fixes for iOS5
Couldn't be a better app and in response to the reviewer saying there just trying to make cops look bad. I think there really just providing a news source and if they are coming across badly must be there own fault.
INFORMATIVE! BUG FIXES NEEDED
Great APP. Would be better if videos didn't lock up the app. When pushing done nothing happens. App has to be closed in order to go back. Cop block is changing society's ignorance one video truth at a time! For this I tip my hat to you.
I wanted to check this out, sounded like a good idea. The app basically does nothing besides have these biased podcast. The base idea of this movement was good but most of these stories are so embellished its a joke. Any normal person can see that whoever is in charge of this is just trying to make cops look bad anyway they can. Not all cops are bad.
