jmac- the exemption is for leos from being charged with 250.45-250.60 . It says nothing about us not being able to record them, just that they can record us as long as its for official business.1.

I understand that, the point is, it's a one way street. The police can Lie to you, YOU can not lie to them~~~~~the police can video tape you, YOU can not video tape them. The 9th Amendment balances this disparity ( I believe it's the 9th)jmac- the exemption is for leos from being charged with 250.45-250.60 .

If the subject is in a public setting, you can record (audio, video, whatever) that subject, whether LEO or not. The text posted by Mr. Jenkins defines what a private setting is:the police can video tape you, YOU can not video tape them.
Any other place would therefore be considered public. This means that (the inside of) your home, public bathroom stalls (but not necessarily the sink area), and dressing rooms are considered to be places where one has a reasonable expectation of privacy. Out on the street, in a store, or out on your unfenced front lawn in a development are all areas where one does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy, even though two of the three locations I just listed are actually on private property.1. "Place and time when a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy" means a place and time when a reasonable person would believe that he or she could fully disrobe in privacy.
That's why they include the definitions of terms with the law.Wait, is it evesdropping to listen, or to record? .
