POLICE PHOTO LINEUP
Construct a sequential photo array/lineup that will satisfy the “best practices” we have studied in class.
ü The line-up should be organized in a three-ring binder
ü Cover Sheet (Name, Police Forensics Period #, Police Photo Line-up, Suspect #)
ü 6 photos: suspect photo and five “fillers” or distracters
As discussed in class, avoid these errors as they will affect your grade:
· Fuzzy photo’s
· Photo’s too small – 8.5 x 11 preferably
· Varying necklines
· Different background and lighting
· Facial expressions that create the potential for “bias”
· Handwritten photo numbers
· Photo’s downloaded from Internet
Rubric (70 points Total):
v 10 points for organization and general appearance (includes cover sheet)
v 60 points for photo line-up (10 points each for photograph)
Without use of a script, you will role play a police training sergeant who must instruct a class of rookies on conducting a proper police photo line-up interview. As part of your “class,” you must stage a mock interview using two other students in class to role play a victim/witness and interviewer. You should be able to accomplish these objectives within a 10minute “class”
Rubric (70 points):
v 40 points: Outlines and explains all required procedures that must be taken in an interview. Explains why these steps must be taken.
v 20 points: Typed script and lesson plan (cannot use my handouts!)
v 10 points: Organizes role play that will allow for key learning objectives to be portrayed and explained to the class.
