Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am thinking of setting up a website to counter anti-social behavior like dropping litter, dog-fouling, etc., and providing evidence to the police or local council for prosecution.
Everyone carries a smart phone these days and rather than getting into confrontations, I want people to discretely take photos or film them and then pass this to me via my website.
I will make sure that content is appropriate and then publish it online asking people in my area if they know this person and where they live. If I get one or more responses I will pass the information on.
This is where the law comes in, I don't want to get into any situation where me or the people taking the video or photos can be counter sued for invasion of privacy, or mis-identification or some other way of avoiding prosecution.
My goal is to clear up the streets and countryside by re-educating people.
Can I have this final reply as an email?
