Reform

NCIP prioritizes legislative efforts that address the consequences and causes of wrongful conviction. Our priorities for this legislative session include implementing eyewitness identification best practices, providing automatic compensation to exonerees, expanding defense access to post-conviction discovery, and improving evidence retention in criminal cases.

NCIP also helps to implement evidence-based practices to reduce the occurrence of wrongful convictions by holding trainings and symposia for attorneys, law enforcement, judges, and the criminal justice community.
