This chapter cites Section 60 of Part V of the Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) 1984, which imposes a duty on the Secretary of State to issue a Code of Practice in connection with the audio recording of interviews with suspects. It notes Section 60A that provides the Secretary of State with the power to issue a Code of Practice for the visual recording of interviews. It also discusses three Codes of Practice that apply to interviews. Code C provides general provisions on the arrangements for and rights, entitlements, and safeguards attaching to interviews of suspects, while Code E governs the conduct and recording of all audio-recorded interviews. Code F sets out similar provisions to those in Code E but in respect of visual and audio-visual recordings.
