The Police and Criminal Evidence Act (PACE) and its Codes of Practice are a vital part of the legislative framework that lays out police powers for combating crime while protecting the rights of the public.

PACE sets out to strike the right balance between the powers of the police and the rights and freedoms of the public. Maintaining that balance is a central element of PACE. The PACE codes of practice cover, stop and search, arrest, detention, investigation, identification, interviewing detainees.

PACE Code E sets out the requirements which apply to all audio recorded interviews, together with the provisions which apply only to interviews which are audio recorded.

PACE Code F sets out the requirements which apply to all visually recorded interviews, together with the provisions which permit simultaneous visual recording.

These Codes have effect from 31 July 2018.
