FBI will begin recording most interrogations, reversing longstanding policy

The FBI and several other federal law enforcement agencies will begin taking video recordings of statements by most suspects in their custody, reversing a longstanding bureau policy that largely prohibited all recordings, reports The Arizona Republic. The policy change, which was leaked by the Republic, was made by the Department of Justice and applies to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the United States Marshals Service, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives as well. The recordings will have a major impact on testimony from the FBI and other agencies during a trial. Defense attorneys have reportedly been able to undermine honest FBI testimony, while in other cases, inaccurate testimony is believed to have led to false convictions.
