Uniform Electronic Recordation of Custodial Interrogations Act

Uniform Electronic Recordation of Custodial Interrogations Act

The Vermont Act requires a custodial interrogation that occurs in a place of detention concerning the investigation of a homicide or sexual assault to be electronically recorded in its entirety.

The Uniform Electronic Recordation of Custodial Interrogations Act requires that law enforcement electronically record the entirety of a custodial interrogation. The Act leaves it to the individual states to decide where and for what types of crimes this mandate applies, as well as the means by which recording must be done. The Act also includes a number of exceptions that excuse non-recording.
