Post-Event Information

Post-event information is information received and processed following an event (such as witnessing a crime or a car accident) that has the potential of altering memory of the actual events. As we know, memory is fluid and can change and fade with the passing of time. This is why it is important that eyewitness accounts of events be taken down as soon as possible after an event occurs. I’m sure that most people reading this have watched crime dramas where it has been shown how much eyewitness accounts can vary.
