Changing Police Mindsets: From Coercion to Justice

Please click here for a fascinating video on changing police mindsets provided by the Anti-Torture Initiative, produced in collaboration with the Association for the Prevention of Torture in Geneva.

The animation depicts the effectiveness of non-coercive investigative interviewing methods and implementation of legal safeguards during the first hours of police custody. Additionally, it furthers the recommendations made by the former Special Rapporteur on Torture in his last report to the UN General Assembly (A/71/298) that called for the development of a set of universal standards and procedural safeguards to protect the physical and mental integrity of all persons during questioning. The animation is also available in English with subtitles in Spanish and French and can be found here.
