More About This Title Reform of Eyewitness Identification Procedures
Top researchers in the field of eyewitness research focus on perhaps the single most important factor underlying innocent convictions: mistaken eyewitness identifications. Contributors present full reviews of the literature on key issues such as the nature and composition of police lineups, the relative effectiveness of sequential vs. simultaneous lineups, the importance of double-blind lineup administrations, the effectiveness of lineups vs. showups, and the slippery nature of eyewitness memory. In 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.
