Eyewitness Evidence #3286

Monday, December 17, 2018

Instructor/ Tom Vitacco

Eyewitness evidence is critical to the apprehension and prosecution of criminals.  Since 1989, DNA evidence has been used to exonerate nearly 200 individuals that were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned.  Of those, approximately 75% were convicted on evidence that included inaccurate and faulty eyewitness identifications.  Research has proven that a number of small changes to the identification process will help improve the accuracy and reliability of eyewitness identification, ensuring that the highest quality of eyewitness evidence is collected and preserved.

 

The goal of this curriculum is to provide students with a knowledge and understanding of how the implementation of recommended protocols, or Best Practices, can improve the accuracy and reliability of eyewitness evidence.
