Eyewitness Identification Procedures Study

A new study authored by University of Virginia School of Law professor Brandon Garrett came out today. Following up on our spring symposium this year, the study undertook a survey of Virginia police department lineup procedures. Despite the adoption of a new state model policy in 2011, the study concludes that more robust measures may be needed to bring about widespread change in these practices.

See the write-up on the UVA Law website.

Several media outlets have reported on the study, including:

The Washington Post article

Richmond Times-Dispatch article

Associated Press article

The study will be published in VJCL’s next issue.

  1. I have studied police line-up procedure extensively and appreciate the new study. Police line-ups should be not be legitimized by the courts.
