Justice Dept. Reviewing FBI Policy on Recording Interviews

WASHINGTON — In a practice that has long been a contentious issue, a Justice Department advisory committee is reviewing the FBI practice of memorializing interviews with suspects in handwritten notes rather than recordings, the website Main Justice is reporting.

The website reported that the issue has become pronounced since an increasing number of local and state law enforcement agencies are recording statements via video and audio recording devices, Main Justice reported.

The website reported that FBI police forbids agents from recording interviews without the OK of the special agent in charge.

“In the past, the bureau and other federal law enforcement agencies have strongly argued against proposals that would require agents to electronically record interviews, on the grounds that they could hinder rapport-building, discourage suspects from speaking candidly and expose juries to unsettling interrogation techniques,” the website reported.
