Recorders Revisited and Listening Devices Too - Posted by Suffolk County Private Investigator:
You can't record another person's conversation here in NY, unless YOU are part of that conversation. In some states, there are no conditions at all that you can record another person..period!Even if you are part of that conversation.
In NY, if you are caught doing this, it is a class E felony.
So, this means, no phone taps, no hidden recorder in your husband/wife/significant other's car, no voice activated recorders left in the home, etc.
Even if video is used, such as a nanny cam, you can't have audio recording activated. Some people don't agree with this law, but privacy concerns are the reason and that's just how it is!
In conclusion, please do not ask us to break the law! We won't do it, no matter how many ways you ask.
Remember, there are other ways to gather evidence and find the truth. Just ask us.
