Miranda warnings and waiver of rights form
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.
