ACLU Mobile Justice is a video live streaming application developed for smartphones by various state chapters of the American Civil Liberties Union.[1][2][3] It was intended to allow instant, secure video recording and transmission of interactions with, and perceived abuses by, law enforcement officers.[4]

Since its release by the ACLU of California for California residents, other versions of the app have been released for 16 other states and the District of Columbia by their ACLU chapters. Another app, "Stop and Frisk Watch", was developed by both the New York Civil Liberties Union and Jason Van Anden, a former Occupy Wall Street protester who previously developed the app "I'm Being Arrested".[5]
