Field Interviewer Solves Interview Recording Need
According to the National Domestic Violence Prosecution Best Practices Guide, recantation occurs in about 80% of domestic violence criminal cases. Domestic violence survivors often recant, minimize, or altogether deny their abuse. Prosecutors, while being mindful of the safety of the victim, need to strategize ways to interview victims so that abusers are held accountable. The Guide suggests that a prosecutor should have a third-party present, such as a law enforcement officer, to record the victim’s interview.
In the event that an officer is not present, the StarWitness Field Interviewer can be quickly and easily set up to record
the interview. Our device is a simple, easy-to-use interview recorder that has been used by law enforcement for over twenty years.
