Art. 251. Legislative intent

            A. The legislature finds that police investigations are strengthened by the use of best practices for investigative procedures, which increase the ability of law enforcement to keep communities safe and apprehend those suspected of criminal activity, reduce erroneous eyewitness identifications, and enhance the reliability and objectivity of eyewitness identification.

            B. The legislature further finds that policies and procedures to improve the accuracy of eyewitness identifications, such as those recommended by the Louisiana Sheriff's Executive Management Institute (LSEMI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, would help to ensure that the integrity of Louisiana criminal justice investigations is strengthened and enhanced so as to convict the guilty and protect the innocent.

            Acts 2018, No. 466, §1, eff. May 23, 2018.
