Remember that the police are human beings too. He made a mistake and will likely be discplined (whatever form that may take). I think that the real issue here is a lack of specific training. As we see time and again, the police do get it wrong with regards to a photographer's activities, but so do some photographers.


We are talking a different world here, stop talking about it as if it's Finchley, it's not it's Northern Ireland. This year alone at least one policeman has been killed, several have been targetted, several bombs have been placed of which some at least have gone off including one last night, in these situations certain 'uman rights' have to suffer somewhat, if it were your neighbourhood you'd demand it.

If any dumb happy snapper decides to photograph a policeman he's almost certainly going to his collar felt, even if he's let go soon after, they are obviously going to check him and the pictures out, so he lost a few tough.

And, hypothetically, did the policeman realise that the iPad in the photographer's backpack was wirelessly twinned with the camera and had made a backup of all images in real-time? With SLR cameras like the new Nikon D5300 now having built in Wi-Fi it is going to be even harder to stop 'illicit' pictures being taken. The bad guys can just shoot whilst an accomplice records backup copies of the images from 30 ft away.

And with mobile phones with 42MP sensors who needs an SLR?

I use an Eye-Fi card as one of my memory cards in my D7000 and this transmits the full JPEG to the iPad whilst the 2nd memory card records the RAW images. Wiping the cards is not enough nowadays.

I suspect that in future you will see the Plod confiscating your iPad and iPhone etc. as well, even if they were not visible at the time! I suggest that you keep them password protected folks so the 'bobby on the beat' cannot just read all the content!
