Change in Eavesdropping Law Blocked


A bill that would have allowed you to record audio of police performing their duties in public has been defeated in the Illinois House.

 

The measure was in response to recent cases where Illinois residents have been charged with felonies for making video and audio recordings of officers.

 

Under the state’s eavesdropping law, all parties involved in a recording must give consent. Even though the bill to change that was defeated, the eavesdropping law still faces a constitutional challenge.
