Oregon CopBlock

Badges don't grant extra rights.

The U.S. Department of Justice says, recording police encounters will "engender public confidence in our police departments, promote public access to information necessary to hold our governmental officers 

accountable, and ensure public and officer safety."

We say it can be done safely and effectively. We encourage you to join us in our efforts.

Film the police.


CopBlock is a decentralized community of individuals, united by the shared goals of:


  • police accountability, 
  • promotion of individual rights, and 
  • dissemination of effective tactics to use while interacting with police.
