Can Police record me without my knowledge? I spoke with a detective after being as to come into the police station. She asked me questions about my husband and allegations that were made against him. Now I am being told that I was recorded without my knowledge and part of my statement is being used against him. Did they have to tell me I was being recorded? Are they allowed to use what I said out of context to make it seem like I am agreeing with them?

Florida Statute 934.03 governs surreptitious recordings. Although Florida is a “2 party” consent state, the statute provides an exception for law enforcement who are conducting a lawful investigation. So they are allowed to record you without telling you but if the recording is altered or spliced then it may not necessarily be admissible.
