On-Demand Webinar Recorded June 14, 2016

Eyewitness misidentification plays a role in about 75% of convictions overturned through DNA testing—and therefore likely has a much wider impact across convictions as a whole. Yet witnesses tend to rate their powers of recall highly. If your officers aren’t using the most up-to-date eyewitness identification techniques, you’re vulnerable to legal challenges and liability associated with wrongful convictions. 

Join us to learn about research and legislation regarding eyewitness identification and policy recommendations for obtaining accurate, unbiased identifications.  

You’ll learn:

  • Steps officers can take to protect eyewitness identifications from challenges in court
  • Common lineup mistakes
  • Lineup techniques that can reduce errors, such as blind administration, witness confidence statements and proper preparation of photo arrays
  • The latest thinking in the sequential vs. simultaneous photo array debate
  • Recent changes to Lexipol’s Eyewitness Identification Policy that incorporate best practices from a diverse group of experts
