respect (always)
hi , what meaning of this sentence (so ..any interaction..distort their memory in following text? From all those TV dramas you've watched you'll be familiar with the forensic scenes of crimes officers wearing their paper suits and covering their shoes and their hair to make sure they don't introduce their DNA or physical traces onto the crime scene. So that in the same way anybody who has any interaction with a witness needs to make sure that they don't distort their memory. thanks for answer

Okay, I'm not quite sure if this is the answer you were looking for, but: - person A (let's say police) who talks to person B (witness), has to be careful not to say or do anything that would make person B falsely remember things -> like the people in the paper suits take care not to corrupt the evidence, person A has to take care not to corrupt the memory Was that the answer you were looking for?

Agnes has given the correct answer. It means; like a police officer must be careful not to suggest things to a witness. To be very careful with their phrasing of (questioning) sentences to a witness.
