was I taking too many pictures?

Posted by monorail on Sat Jun 19 02:23:11 2010

as i was leaving the upper deck stands at yankee stadium, a Police Officer asked to see my photos and then asked for my ID. Showed her the photos and my ID. But I also noted her name and badge #, will be writing a letter to the yankees organization...

Thanks to the GOP and the PBA, the CCRB is TOOTHLESS.

You should have asked if she had a search warrant.

The cops inside the stadium, although they're wearing NYPD uniforms, are actually moonlighting working for and getting paid by the security company. You have that in several other places such as hotels and the Empire State Building. It's called paid details. While the NYPD does impose restrictions & guidelines they are NOT working for the NYPD. Only the cops OUTSIDE on the street are working for the NYPD. That's why if you check their collar brass they're all from mixed commands. It's also why you see very little (or no) sergeants as the SBA (Sergeants Benevolent Assn) discourages paid details and would throw one out of the union for working a paid detail.

First of all that's not true. The PBA has no say in CCRB and I can't see the Republican Party having any pull (or reason) either. The CCRB is strong which is unfortunate as they take too many frivolous complaints seriously.
And even if the PBA did have pull, isn't that what a union is there for, to protect their members?

Sometimes I see uniformed police at the TD bank on 108 and 63rd in Queens. I guess he's paid by a security company too?

If they're working inside, probably yes. But it could be a footpost going into the bank to keep warm. (or cold, depending on the season)

Imagine if they got paid enough that they didn't HAVE to pick up extra work to eat. :(

I wonder why that would concern them?

Check their photography policy - quite interesting:

Cameras and video equipment

Single-frame flash photography is permitted. Tripods, extended length zoom lenses, other professional camera equipment, movie cameras and any other video or audio recording equipment are not permitted in Yankee Stadium. Guests are not permitted to transmit or aid in transmitting any account, description, picture, video, audio, reproduction or other information about any games.


I guess they don't want anyone competing with the pros. If the cop is working a security detail like Sarge says and they suspected you were video taping then they are within their rights to ask since it is a private venue which gets to set its rules. What I find interesting is the phrase "not permitted to transmit or aid in transmitting any account, description or other information about any games". Does this mean we can't call our friends and discuss the game either?
