"Auditors" Police, security guards etc

Exactly, and that's why this isn't an issue - except for those who wrongly believe they can't - as demonstrated by many on here, and the subjects in most of the videos who state "you can't film here mate".

They can....
But there are also places where they can be denied permission and where they should be asked questions rather than be ignored.

Any comment on the highly polite method of dealing with suspicious persons by inviting them in to the bar then offering a bed for the night?

If anyone wants to engage with the auditors then that's fine - it is the easiest way to establish that they are indeed auditors and nothing more sinister, but don't go telling them they cannot do something or demanding their identity or they delete footage when it is their right to do so.

We often see clips where the Police and others merely interact with them by saying "oh OK, so you're just filming this and putting it online?" - and they wish the auditors well and they carry on regardless and it's a non-incident.

Of course there are restricted areas where rules do apply, where ID is required and checks are conducted for entry - and if applied properly they prevent such instances of Fake Priests giving it big licks in the Mess before getting their head down in barracks for the night.

There’s a a guy who calls himself gypsy auditor or something like that. He goes to police stations and prisons being aggressive and generally antagonist to the staff.
Filming on public land is one thing but surely being aggressive and entering crown property and or prison grounds which the purpose of annoying and abusing staff is crossing a line??

And that other idiot Kloeeburks or whatever he calls himself. He goes to warehouses, offices and wanders around putting cameras in people faces. All he then does is quote PINAC or something.

The thick as mince idiot is a convicted criminal. People like him think they are clever just because they’ve googled a few laws and then go around quoting it to members of the public who would have no idea what he’s talking about.

I also think that going into MOD bases and filming a bloke on stag duty is also pushing it too far too.

They just like getting ‘likes’ on their YouTube channel, by people who have a dislike to anyone in a uniform.

Probably other like minded peados who failed the entrance tests to join the Army/ police and now have an axe to grind against authority.

Who else would drive to Aldershot or Brize Norton for example, to get a reaction from a random squaddie on a gate? What’s the point? What do they think they are educating people with?

It’s clear to me that most auditors have a strong dislike against the police and prison officers because they are mostly ex cons with a grudge against the system.
 
This bloke. He was dealt with correctly by the Police officer he spoke about the "breaking of the law" in that a Police car was parked on double yellow, engine running with officer on phone. But it was outside Criminal Justice Office and doing something with high risk persons. But our do-gooder....sorry antagonise-for-likes "Auditor" wanted to push it further. PRAT!!
 
This popped up on my YouTube feed today, hospital security behaving like cocks, but a couple of Police officers handling the situation perfectly, especially the female officer.

 
So probably best to not react to them and give them nothing?
Pretty much, yes

Edit - My comment was meant to be with regard to giving less views to the YouTubers
I obviously didn’t read properly

Security at a location should not ignore them, and ought to show that they are paying attention and ask what the YouTuber is doing.
This involves knowing what is and isn’t allowed, eg that at point x you’re on general public land and are at liberty to film, but y point the land belongs to z so you can be declined permission to film

As soon as they say ‘But it’s accessible’ the YouTuber has failed ‘auditing’ and either shows their ignorance or that they are only after arguments for clickbait

They'll then start their shenanigans of baiting you, getting right up in your face, insulting you etc. etc. to try and provoke a reaction.

Yes unfortunately it’s true. There was a time when people left blokes stagging on a gate a wide berth, or didn’t go on some bizarre tour of the country to film someone doing a rather boring job.

Just because there are double yellow lines on a road doesn’t mean that they are enforceable. Supermarket car parks have double yellows on private land.
