What if I don't want to be recorded?

This depends on the situation. There may be times when an individual may not wish to be recorded, especially in locations where they may have an expectation of privacy (such as a residence). If the officer feels that stopping the recording will not in any way hamper the investigation, then the officer may choose to turn off the BWC. Howerver, officers are not obligated to stop the recording of incidents involving an investigation, lawful search, arrest, or other circumstances that clearly dictate that continued recording is necessary.
