Force orders cops to record interviews with suspects
THE HIERARCHY OF the Royal Barbados Police Force has issued a directive that all interviews with suspects are to be conducted in a designated room equipped with video cameras.
A senior police officer, who requested anonymity, told the SUNDAY SUN that the high command took the decision in the wake of recent allegations of assault against police officers.
However, he pointed out that while rooms may be provided with recording facilities, only two stations, District A and Oistins, had rooms with surveillance equipment.
He added that another issue was that there are no custodians assigned to process the videos and place them in storage for future use. (MB)
