I'm looking for "the other side" of the question of recording an encounter with police, such as a traffic stop. I am pleased to say that this is purely hypothetical. My view is that there is no reason why a person should be prevented from recording (audio or video) a police encounter. I limit this opinion to recording by the subject of the encounter, not a bystander. There are numerous advantages to being able to record, it seems. Are there disadvantages? Are there ways that this could endanger an officer, create an undue burden to their work, etc? And, for that matter, is it permissible to record an encounter in Utah? Thanks.
