Eye-Witness Identification (TCOLE #3286)
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.
