I don’t understand my rights, but I think I do: Canadians’ understanding of the police caution

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Several studies demonstrate that comprehension of the Canadian police caution (known as the Miranda warning in the U.S.) is low. This study explored the possibility that comprehension of the caution might be improved via two adaptations: providing a written copy of the caution and slowing the rate at which the caution is delivered orally. Participants were 168 undergraduate students who heard, read, or heard and read the police caution and then completed a measure of comprehension. Comprehension of the police caution was poor, and the 2 variables did not influence participants’ understanding of the police caution.
