Chapter Summary

Good behaviour in the investigative process, and specifically in the conduct of interviews, is one element that is essential to the delivery of a high quality, effective service to the community. In order to provide guidance for police officials, and to promote good behaviour and best practice, codes of practice for the detention, treatment and questioning of people in detention have been developed in some countries. The codes usually embody specific provisions to secure lawful and humane treatment of detainees who are vulnerable, such as juveniles, those who are suffering from mental illness or mental impairment, and detainees who need an interpreter. The chapter indicates that technology can be an important element in securing compliance with human rights standards in the process of interviewing.
