Reducing crime is an ongoing battle. It also requires a team effort between our legal system and law enforcement. In order to get to the truth, public safety has to provide the most accurate evidence possible for the court to review.
The Value of Interview Evidence
Our justice system places great importance on physical evidence. Yet the crux of a case will often hinge on an expertly-navigated interrogation or compelling testimonial. Both juries and judges deserve to have all of the facts, and there’s no denying that an emotional account can help shed more light on what actually took place.
Securing this critical evidence can only happen when law enforcement agencies have the right tools for their interview room recording equipment. By upgrading to an iRecord solution, teams can record high-quality audio video and manage their digital evidence more effectively than ever before.
Setting Up Your Interview Room Recording Equipment
Agencies today require interview room recording equipment that’s modern, reliable, and strategically incorporated into the space. Detectives only have one opportunity to have these conversations, so their microphones and cameras need to work flawlessly every time. Any malfunction can dramatically impact the outcome of a case. Losing an interview or accidently recording evidence that isn’t court-admissible simply isn’t an option.
The court needs to have access to all of the evidence to make a just ruling. But ultimately, even a complete interview recording may not be court-admissible. The interview room recording equipment must be set up in such a way that every single word is clearly documented. The subject’s body should also be in full-view. This helps eliminate any doubt as to whether the interview was conducted appropriately and without interference.
Of course, this is easier said than done. But agencies that collaborate with an experienced solutions provider give themselves a leg up to ensure that all of their recordings will be compliant, and that their recording equipment will be user-friendly and worry-free.
