Eyewitness Identification Procedures

Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway 1517 Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway, Irvine, CA 92697

For years, psychologists, lawyers and law enforcement have been studying and discussing what practices might be best for getting the most accurate information from eyewitnesses.  In a new scientific project, they have examined what law enforcement agencies are actually doing.  How often are they using best practices such as double-blind lineups, or documenting the initial confidence?  Are small agencies doing using them as much as large ones?  Their findings have implications for the fairness our justice system delivers in cases that hinge on eyewitness memory.
