He has developed and provided live law enforcement training. He has also worked with Arkansas’s Criminal Justice Institute to develop online training on eyewitness identification best practices.  Dr. Lampinen has also acted in an advisory capacity to the Arkansas Association of Chiefs of Police and has addressed their meetings on eyewitness identification policy.  Dr. Lampinen has also provided continuing legal education for the Arkansas Bar Association and was awarded a “best of CLE” by the Arkansas Bar Association.
