The rules dealing with police lineups were changed in Colorado when Governor John Hickenlooper signed Senate Bill 15-058 into law in April 2015. Traditional lineup procedures have long been criticized by civil rights advocates, and studies have discovered that honest citizens often make identifications despite being unsure because they are eager to do their part and help the police fight crime. However, it was the introduction of DNA evidence that spurred lawmakers in Colorado and 24 other states to introduce new lineup rules.
