Electronic Recording of Interrogations and Confessions

Electronic Recording of Interrogations and Confessions

Policy Center Resource

Law enforcement agencies should electronically record specific custodial interrogations and confessions in order to provide an evidentiary record of statements made by suspects of major crimes. Such electronic recordings can help protect both the suspect(s) and interviewing officers against potential assertions of police coercion or related interrogation misconduct, and may increase the likelihood of successful prosecution.

These documents establish guidelines and procedures for the electronic recording of custodial interrogations and confessions.
