We have repeatedly asked the NYPD to include in their patrol guide the rules and regulations regarding photography in public. They have thus far not commented back and have done nothing. They insist that their officers know the rules. This is not so. We have incidents in which photographers have been harassed by police with this latest incident being the worst. We’ve had at least one news photographer, Keith Bedford, threatened with arrest for taking photos in subway. He and others have relented rather than face arrest.
The NYPD continues to insist that their officers know the rules.

I carry copies of the official MTA rules permitting photos in all public spaces (just no lights, reflectors or tripods) printed off their website cause I am often stopped and harassed; not always by police cause Im white but more so by motormen, conductors and other passengers thinking they are “seeing something”.
NYPD is pissing off photographers in general!!!
