With most people toting smartphones these days, it's much easier for citizens to record police actions and injustices.

In some cases, phones have been taken away after recording police, so various programmers have made apps to ensure video of officers in action isn't lost if a phone is confiscated.

Here are four mobile police recording apps that can be downloaded on a phone.

Urgent: Should All Police Officers Have to Wear Body Cameras?

1. Mobile Justice
Mobile Justice is an app created by the American Civil Liberties Union for videotaping questionable police conduct on one’s phone. The app sends video directly to the nearest ACLU chapter after being recorded. If your phone is confiscated from you, the video stays safe from being deleted. The App is free and available for Apple and Android.

2. Cop Watch Video Recorder
This app begins filming the moment it's launched. Once done filming, users have the option of uploading the video directly to YouTube. In addition to being able to film, the app gives advice surrounding laws of filming police officers. The app can be downloaded on the iPhone and is free.

3. Cop Recorder
This app allows users to secretly capture voice recordings of law enforcement encounters without having the app open at all times. Once enacted, this app gives off the impression that the phone is operating normally, without showing the app working. Once recorded, the app sends the recordings to the app’s servers. The app is for both iOS and Android and is free.

4. Cop Block
Cop Block is a police recording app to which people can send a video after filming questionable police behavior. The app serves as a connection to a community of people sharing content of recording law enforcement. This app is available on iOS and Android and is free.
