Abstract:

Eyewitness researchers testify about the reliability of eyewitness descriptions and identifications and apply these conclusions to police officers as eyewitnesses. Because police officers deal with criminal events daily, many believe their ability to remember perpetrators and crimes to be better than average. Researchers often conclude that this belief is incorrect. We provide a narrative and meta-analytic synthesis of police officers' eyewitness performance compared to civilians. Police provided more correct descriptions compared to civilians. Lineup and facial recognition studies show little evidence that police make more accurate decisions, although they may choose more often than civilians. Research deficits are emphasized.
