Question Description

Recently, your police department has received media coverage and community activist criticism because of the detective bureau's techniques of interrogation. Your chief of detectives has assigned you to develop a general order for the chief of police to consider implementing on this topic. The chief will use your drafted general order to prepare his response to the media at a press conference scheduled for next week. Therefore, time is critical. Consider the following:

  • Miranda warnings and waiver of rights form
  • Use of audio and video equipment
  • Note-taking
  • Developing a plan
  • Knowledge of the subject and incident

This general order should provide sufficient detail on each of the topics, and it should address the legal and ethical considerations and implications of conducting interviews and interrogations. Research general orders so that your submission reflects a format that is typical of what might be seen in a police department general order.

reported at the police department, detective bureau.
The first issue to be addressed is that of the issuance of Miranda warnings and
abandonment of rights form. To improve the interrogation practice at the police department, it
will become a mandatory requirement for there to be reading of Miranda rights to all the
suspects. The legal and ethical considerations behind this directive are to offer the provision for
the suspect to avoid self-incrimination (Law Info, n.d.). This rule was instituted by the Supreme
Court that was meant to inform the suspects of their rights before any police questioning could
be conducted. The next step will be that of the presentation of the waiver of rights form which
will aim to protect the interrogators from any criminal liability as a result of the various
interrogation techniques employed. The issuance of the w...
