Great info, thanks for the official word. My experience was that I was never approached by park police to show a permit, but again, I didn't have any models/clients I was shootin. Just me, wife, bikes, tripod and camera...and about two o'clock in the morning!
We actually approached some of the police and spoke with them about photos while we were at the capitol bldg and they never mentioned anything about permits either. Not saying it won't happen to someone else, that was just my experience that one time.
Shooting in the mall at night rocks. The capitol can be especially cool when they're in session, the dome lights are on.
