ID capture

The purposes of eye-witness identification procedures are to:

  • Test the witness’ ability to identify the suspect as the person they saw on a previous occasion;
  • Provide safeguards against mistaken identification.

There are a number of different procedures open to the police, depending on the evidence in the case. These include eye-witness identification, finger print identification and DNA identification.

ID capture procedures are highly valuable and often vital pieces of evidence, however it is important that the police comply with all their procedural requirements and act in accordance with the law.
