H3449: An Act requiring audiovisual recordings of certain police interrogations

Building on a Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision, this legislation requires that custodial interrogations of suspects in the most serious crimes be filmed. With this video record, jurors will be better able to discern false confessions and prosecutors will have more conclusive evidence when there is an authentic confession.
