Reform of Eyewitness Identification Procedures free pdf In recent decades, nearly 300 U.S. citizens convicted of major felonies have been found innocent and exonerated. Along the way, forensic psychologists have played a key role in efforts to uncover and publicise the systemic issues that contribute to erroneous convictions.

Now, in Reform of Eyewitness Identification Procedures, he narrows his focus to the most important single factor underlying many innocent convictions: mistaken eyewitness identifications. Top researchers in the field of eyewitness research present full reviews of the literature on key issues such asthe nature and composition of police lineupsthe relative effectiveness of sequential vs. simultaneous lineupsthe importance of double-blind lineup administrationsthe effectiveness of lineups vs. showupsthe slippery nature of eyewitness memoryIn each chapter, authors turn research into practice by providing clear and practical recommendations for effective police and legal reform. This book is an important milestone in ongoing efforts to make mistaken convictions a thing of the past.
