Arrest and Detention Survey, NSS Exodus


Conducted by CMDR Jim Calhoun, NanoTrasen ISD

 

An arrest or investigation is a suspension of liberties on the pretense of criminal liability. They are hardly pleasant things, but it's a necessary tool for the interests of law and order. In order to gather research on arrests and detentions, please take the time to fill out and submit this anonymous survey, followed by the submission of a vote in a general poll.

Have you been arrested or detained before? If so, describe the encounter to the best of your ability. The head of security and an officer arrested him by throwing him on the floor and pinning him to the floor by the shoulders, and then brought him into a dark room and started yelling in his ear.

What do the words "arrest" and "detention" mean to you? Arrest means to put someone in cuffs and bring them in, detaining in putting them in the brig.

What are your feelings on the use of force by officers to effect an arrest/detention? They should only use force on people who use force against them, or when someone tries to escape.

What is your ideal arrest/detention procedure? If someone isn't violent, they should just take them in without cuffs, and if they need to use cuffs they shouldn't be so violent to people. He also thinks a small, dark room with no lights isn't a place to deal with arrested people.

Should Security alter their arrest/detention procedures? Absolutely.

Is there anything else on this subject that you would wish to bring to light? He thinks the problem is the people, not the procedures. He thinks a lot of people need to be kicked out and replaced with people who can do the job right.

Anonymous ? Well then

Have you been arrested or detained before? If so, describe the encounter to the best of your ability.

I was once arrested a gunpoint, by an officer wielding a shotgun. There was a lot of shouting and gun waving, but he didn't tell me the charges. On the way to the brig, several other officers gunned him down, though with non lethal rounds i believe, i had no idea what was going on. And i was brought the remainder of the way to the brig by a security borg, and handed over to officers.


Once there, i was put in an isolation cell without a headset or PDA, and not interviewed or formally charged with anything Officers passing by my cell called me a terrorist, and wouldn't speak with me any farther. Nobody interviewed me or took a statement. IF they had, they would have learned that people could account for my whereabouts all day, and that i'd done nothing wrong.


I was taken to departures in a prison jumpsuit and cuffs, still having not been interviewed. And it was only once i got back to central command, i found i was accused of bombing the station and killing several officers. An actual investigation by their people found fabricated evidence, whoever did it had framed me, and i was released with little more than a brief apology. The whole experience was terrifying, dehumanising, and humiliating. If anyone had stopped to talk to me properly at any point, they would have realised i wasn't their suspect.


What do the words "arrest" and "detention" mean to you?

Arrest implies being charged with a crime, and given a sentance.

Detained i believe, means being held temporarily without charge, such as for interview, or until backup arrives. Detention can be used for witnesses and victims as well as suspects, and should be limited in duration, and happen outside of a cell.


What are your feelings on the use of force by officers to effect an arrest/detention?

Anyone should be talked to politely and asked to come along first. Force, and even cuffs, shouldn't be used unless the suspect resists or doesnt cooperate


What is your ideal arrest/detention procedure?

The suspect should be brought into processing, and asked first if they want to declare or admit to anything. Then they should be searched, and interviewed regarding whatever they were arrested for, and be allowed to call witnesses to corroborate their story.


Should Security alter their arrest/detention procedures?

I think a lot more emphasis needs to be placed on interviewing


Is there anything else on this subject that you would wish to bring to light?

I rarely see the station with a good balance of officers, detectives, and forensics. security staff needs to be more diverse in roles, but prioritising officers when there are few or none

Have you been arrested or detained before? If so, describe the encounter to the best of your ability. Yes, I was once awaiting processing peacefully when a disgruntled member of security flashed me repeatedly and threw me into a cell against the wishes of the HoS and warden, who were glad that I was complying.

What do the words "arrest" and "detention" mean to you? Arrest is to take someone in for changes, detain is to hold someone for something like a interrogation.

What are your feelings on the use of force by officers to effect an arrest/detention? Talk first, fight second.

What is your ideal arrest/detention procedure? Talk to person, if they do not comply, try stunning.

Should Security alter their arrest/detention procedures? Not really, should follow them more though.

Is there anything else on this subject that you would wish to bring to light? Screen security employees more for mental illness. Also, having synths on the security team is a big risk.
