Whether you are a regular contributor to Cop Block, an activist; who knows the value of keeping a camera handy when dealing with police and other government officials, or simply a fan; who wants to demonstrate your support for what Cop Block does and spread the word to others, there is a new tool available to make it easier for you to do so.
Official Cop Block press passes are designed as a multifunctional option for anyone involved with Cop Block, as well as a convenient and attractive way to support Cop Block’s goals of holding law enforcement accountable for their actions. They act as both a visual indicator that you value your rights and a prominent warning to anyone that might want to infringe upon them.
Official Cop Block press passes are available for the national CopBlock.org network and any of the local Cop Block affiliates located in over thirty different cities.
- Any questions or (limited) special requests can be either sent as a memo along with the donation or via email to: [email protected] Also, if for some reason you can’t (or don’t want to) use Paypal, there are several “crypto” currency options (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, etc.) available within the shopping cart itself. If none of those work for you either, send me an email and we can work out some other option.

Checks and money orders will also be accepted, but they must be mailed and have to clear the bank prior to any orders being sent out. Just send me an email for the address to send it to.

Press passes cost $15 and are created biweekly, so you should receive your order within about 2 weeks (typically sooner).

Cop Block is a decentralized project supported by a diverse group of individuals united by their shared goals of police accountability, education of individual rights and the dissemination of effective tactics to utilize while filming police.
We seek to highlight the double standard that some grant to those with badges. By documenting police actions – whether they are illegal, immoral or just a waste of time and resources – then calling the police stations involved (ideally while recording and then later sharing your conversation), we can work together to bring about transparency and have a real impact.
In addition to this direct pressure on police departments we want to be an educational resource on institutional changes that would curtail the common right-violations and unaccountability today by those with badges and a place to showcase different techniques, viewpoints and courses of action.
