Eyewitness Identification: Unfinished Discussion and Directions for Future Research

Tuesday, February 20 at 2:00 p.m. EST
Free online event

Eyewitnesses play 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 will push this conversation forward and offer diverse perspectives on eyewitness identification procedures, with a special focus on research activity that has occurred since the conferences at Loyola and PERF.

The discussion will be moderated by Philip J. Cline, Superintendent of the
Chicago Police Department. The panel includes:

Roy S. Malpass, Ph.D—Professor of Psych., Univ. of Texas, El Paso
Nancy Steblay, Ph.D—Professor of Psych., Augsburg College
James Doyle—Center for Modern Forensic Practice, John Jay College of
Criminal Justice
