Eyewitness Identification: Unfinished Discussion and Directions for Future Research

Eyewitness evidence plays a critical role in the criminal investigation process. A recent study on photo array and lineup procedures conducted within the Chicago Police Department suggests, contrary to expectations, that sequential presentation is not superior to simultaneous presentation. Subsequent conferences at Loyola and at the Police Executive Research Forum resulted in heated debates on methodology and policy implications, as well as calls for more research.

In this 2-hour online event, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice and the Government Innovators Network, our panel of experts pushed this conversation forward, offering diverse perspectives on eyewitness identification procedures, with a special focus on research activity that has occurred since the conferences at Loyola and PERF.
