Regras para a identificação testemunhal

Today the National Academy of Sciences issued a landmark report evaluating the scientific research on memory and eyewitness identification. Researchers conducted an in-depth review of three decades of basic and applied scientific research on eyewitness identification and provided recommendations for improving police identification procedures and for how courts handle eyewitness evidence. The Innocence Project, which has long advocated for many of the reforms recommended in the report, urges states and courts across the nation to enact the recommendation in order to prevent wrongful convictions.
