Abstract:

To date, alibi research has focused on jurors’ perceptions of alibi believability. In the current survey, senior police personnel were questioned about their opinions and experiences regarding alibi investigations and stories. Respondents indicated that the most believable alibi stories include physical evidence or a statement from an unmotivated other. However the majority of participants said that suspects only provide physical evidence in 20% of cases or less and that unmotivated strangers lie to police in approximately 12% of cases (mostly out of fear of the suspect). Overall, the results of the survey show that police are skeptical of alibi statements.
