State Senator Dennis Baxley Files Eyewitness Identification Reform Act
Florida Senator Dennis Baxley (R-Ocala) has filed Senate Bill 312, which will require state, county, municipal, or other law enforcement agencies that conduct lineups to follow specified procedures. It will require the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission to create educational materials to inform law enforcement of these new procedures and provide training programs on how to conduct lineups, etc.
