The Forensic Psychology eBook Collection: Eyewitness Evidence: A Guide For Law Enforcement

Although the evidence eyewitnesses provide is critical in identifying, charging, and ultimately convicting suspected criminals, the evidence is not infallible. With this in mind, this invaluable guide was developed and approved by the Technical Working Group for Eyewitness Evidence (U.S. Department of Justice).

The Technical Working Group for Eyewitness Evidence (TWGEYEE) is a multidisciplinary group of 34 content-area experts from across the United States and Canada. Each member of the (TWGEYEE) is experienced in the use of eyewitness evidence in the criminal justice system from the standpoints of law enforcement, prosecution, defense, or social science.

Eyewitness Evidence: A Guide for Law Enforcement outlines basic procedures to obtain the most reliable and accurate information from eyewitnesses. Topics addressed include:

  • Initial Report of the Crime
  • Mug Books and Composites
  • Procedures for Interviewing the Witness
  • Field Identification Procedure
  • Composing Lineups
  • Procedures for Eyewitness Identification of Suspects
