Cops will always demand your identification, even when they have no reasonable suspicion that you are committing a crime, but they really dislike providing you with their name and badge number.
However, there is no legal requirement for you to hand over your identification if they cannot articulate a specific crime they suspect you have committed.
And almost all law enforcement agencies have policies that require officers to identify themselves to citizens when asked.
Unfortunately, these realities are rarely played out on the streets when cops confront you for legally recording from a public sidewalk.
The latest example comes to us from Central Florida where Michael Burns stood outside the Polk County Detention Center video recording from a public sidewalk at around 5 a.m. earlier this week, only to be harassed by a group of detention officers, claiming he was somehow a safety threat.
