Eyewitness Identification A Police Perspective - AVAILABLE NOW


This comprehensive text addresses the step-by-step process of applying the new eyewitness identification procedures that includes: understanding human memory, applying the cognitive interviewing techniques, administering proper eyewitness instructions prior to show-ups, live line-ups and photo array presentations, administering the live line-ups and photo array in a sequential double blind manner and the importance of obtaining a certainty statement.  A great deal of this information comes from the authors experience as Planning Panel Members of the Department of Justice Technical Working Group for Eyewitness Evidence.

The application of these techniques increase the confidence of the investigator and the identifications that are obtained as well as reducing the chances of a misidentification that may lead to a wrongful conviction.
