What Is An Inspection Memo?

An Inspection Memo is a short description of an arrested individual’s physical condition when they are brought into custody. It must record the general physical condition and note major and minor injuries of the person. This procedure is meant to ensure that there is no beating or torture of the arrested individual by the police while in custody.

Once prepared, the document must be verified and then signed by the arrested individual and the police. The police must give the individual a copy.

It is the right of any individual who is taken into police custody to have an Inspection Memo prepared for themselves and the law mandates that the police do so.
