Eyewitness Identification Reform in Connecticut

State statute requires law enforcement agencies to adopt procedures for photo and live lineups that comply with minimum standard best practices, including blind administration of lineups and proper filler selection, proper instructions, and confidence statements. The bill also established the Eyewitness Identification Task Force, which released its findings in February 2012. The report can be accessed here. Effective: 2011.
