Eyewitnesses play a critical role in our criminal justice system when they identify offenders of crime.  That being said, eyewitness identification is considered the leading cause of wrongful convictions.  At the same time, eyewitness evidence continues to be an important tool for investigators and prosecutors.  In this case, participants will gain a strong working knowledge of the following issues to ensure proper eyewitness identification at the outset of the investigation:

  • Constitutional requirement (5th, 6th & 14th Amendments),
  • Review of Massachusetts Case Law,
  • Review of Sample Eyewitness Identification Policy, and
  • Eyewitness Identification Procedures:
    • Photo Array,
    • Show-up,
    • Line-up,
    • Voice Identification, and
    • In Court Identification.
