Benefits of Electronic Recording

VideOversight™ delivers benefits for law enforcement officers, suspects, prosecutors, juries, and judges, and strengthens the search for truth in our justice system. According to a recent study*, electronic recording of custodial interrogations and investigative interviews provides the following benefits:

  Used as an online training tool, digital video allows law enforcement agencies to improve policies, procedures and interview techniques
  Digital recording reduces the need for officers to prepare reports from handwritten notes, with the risk of important omissions
  Video provides stronger evidence for the prosecution and fewer pretrial motions to suppress
  A full video record of the interrogation process protects officers against claims of abuse, coercion and perjury
  Recording saves the time and cost of many lengthy contested pretrial and trial hearings, because recordings make some extensive testimony unnecessary
  Irrefutable video evidence leads to more guilty pleas
  Irrefutable video evidence also leads to a reduction in risk of innocent persons being convicted or guilty persons being acquitted
  Video provides stronger prosecution records on appeal
