Why Eyewitnesses Fail

Identifying the Culprit - Assessing Eyewitness IdentificationIn the July 25, 2017 edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Thomas D. Albright, co-chair of the CSTL Committee that authored the 2014 report Identifying the Culprit: Assessing Eyewitness Identification, discusses the scientific issues that emerged from the study and how the issues led to recommendations for additional research, best practices for law enforcement, and use of eyewitness evidence by the courts.
