Civil rights groups are concerned that the police will violate their rights during the Inauguration protests so they intend to record their behavior. Meanwhile, the ACLU supports a D.C. Law that tells the police to turn off their body worn cameras during the events.
D.C. Police say their policy is to only record when there is a police activity and they do not consider monitoring protests an activity.

“We are concerned what they will do with the data,” says Monica Hopkins-Maxwell of the District of Columbia ACLU.
Ironically, at the same time the ACLU expects the police to not record the inauguration, they have launched a new app called “Mobile Justice” that encourages others to record law enforcement.
