The NFL does it! So does the NBA, NHL, MLB and the NCAA! So why aren’t we recording all the critical details of our interviews and interrogations?
With increased attention to cases of wrongful conviction and contaminated statements, interviews of victims, witnesses, and suspects is receiving added scrutiny by both criminal and civil courts. This includes not only law enforcement but retail and corporate loss prevention as well. The consequences can be financially staggering!
The simple truth is that despite the sworn testimony of investigators that statements obtained from suspects are voluntary and not coerced, there are increasing legal challenges to show proof via electronic recording. As a result many agencies and several states are establishing policies that require recording of victim, witness and suspect interviews.
Even though the idea of mandatory recording of some interviews and interrogations has been around in since 1984, there are still some local, state and federal agencies that are still putting off their decision to record or not record.
This virtual training session will focus on some the facts, fiction and fallacies about the electronic recording on interviews and interrogations. Topics will include:
• Historical Background
• Policy Considerations
• Recording Procedures
• Preservation of Recordings
• Transcription Services
• Recording Applications
• Equipment Selection
• Static Installations
