An interrrogation room is a place where an interrogator ask questions to a suspect or a witness to get confession or facts about a given case. There are two opinions as to the what type of interrogation room there should be.
According to the traditional thinking an interrogation room should be at a place where there is no interference from the daily routine work of police office.
The room should have no windows, nothing should be hanging on the walls and there should be no telephone, so that the room is free from any distraction; two straight-up chairs without arms, one each for interrogator and suspect without a table in between.
The logic behind this concept is that a table, a physical barrier in between, will lead to become a psychological barrier, and will be more advantageous to a suspect than an interrogator. Again the interogator will not be able to observe the suspect's physical reaction to crime related and unrelated questions.
Similarly a window with see-through views outside, decoration on the wall, and telephone ringing at the height of an interrogation are supposed to distract attention of the suspect and less advantageous to the atmosphere for interrogation.
But this concept has considerably changed now and the modern thinking is that an interrogation room should be more comfortable than the traditional interrogation room with all the modern facilities of observing and recording of the activities that takes place during interrogation.
Modern audio and video technology must be used to record an interrogation which will also help to show fairness and authenticity of the interogation.
To me, combination of both the traditional and modern concept will serve the purpose of interrogation better than purely using either one of the concept.
