IACP has released a new, five-video series on eyewitness identification to provide training for officers during roll call. The techniques featured in the videos are based on the IACP model policy, as well as the recommendations of the National Academy of Sciences.
The first video is a general overview of the reasons for eyewitness identification reform.
The second video talks about an officer’s initial response to the scene and modern techniques for eliciting a description and a statement.
The third video is about when officers locate a suspect near the scene and decide to conduct a show up, a live one-on-on identification procedure.
The fourth discusses photo arrays of potential suspects.
The fifth video is designed for detectives who conduct live lineups.
