Q: What are some police procedures and legal rules that can reduce the inaccuracy of eyewitness identification?
A: What are some police procedures and legal rules that can reduce the inaccuracy of eyewitness identification? Answer: olice chiefs across the United States seek to implement eyewitness identification procedures that are most likely to lead to the [ identification of the guilty and are least likely to result in a false identification of an innocent suspect. Every police chief recognizes that there
is room for improvement in eyewitness identification procedures. But today?s chiefs face conflicting and often confusing information in evaluating how best to improve eyewitness identification procedures. This article first discusses two frequently recommended yet controversial changes to eyewitness identification procedures: the sequential display of photos and the use of ?blind? administrators. Although this article takes the position that the relative merits of the sequential, double-blind identification procedure remain unsettled, it advocates that DNA exonerations provide guidance for necessary improvements to training, protocols, and practices in eyewitness identification, independent of the ultimate resolution of the sequential, double-blind procedures. The article concludes with practical recommendations for genuine improvements to eyewitness identification practices that every police chief can, and should, adopt now. Read more: ]
