AG Orders Recording of Interrogations to Conform to Rule 3:17

In his final official act in office, the outgoing Attorney general today issued Directive 2006-02. The Directive conforms the time table for implementation of the recording of custodial interrogations to Rule 3:17.

When fully implemented on January 1, 2007, the Directive and rule 3:17 will require electronic recordation of interrogations for all crimes of the third degree or higher that must always be prepared on a warrant. (See Rule 3:3-1(c)).

The mandatory recording of statements does not apply to drunk driving or disorderly persons offenses.
