I have never been hassled there, and I have only head of a few times where others have been bothered. For the most part, you should be ok. People are out there all the time. Others here might be able to help by sharing their experiences if they have had any run-ins with the cops.

I've never been hassled by the police when shooting at the main spotters lot or even up the hill at the corner of India Street & Ivy Street (arrivals only at the latter spot).
Regarding the main spotting lot: be sure that your vehicle is parked inside one of the painted parking stalls because the police will make you move if you're not in one. If you could shoot from the bed of a truck, you'd have a clear view over the airport fence to get the departures as well as the landings. A large step-stool could be placed on top of the utility box (by the fence) to see over the fence too.
