The Baltimore Police Department has announced that it will begin implementing the new “Double Blind – Sequential Photo Array” for use by detectives investigating criminal acts.
At the cutting edge of law enforcement trends, the Baltimore Police Department will be the largest police department in Maryland to implement this practice.
Endorsed by the Innocence Project as well as the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, this new method dramatically reduces the percentage of innocent people wrongly identified as suspects in criminal cases.
The implementation of this nationally recognized best practice is a result of the collaborative effort of both outside experts and the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office.
The department said it will offer more details on how the method works at a press event to be held on Thursday.
