Abstract

APA’s Award for Distinguished Contributions to Research in Public Policy is given to a psychologist who has made a distinguished empirical and/or theoretical contribution to research in public policy, either through a single extraordinary achievement or a lifetime of work. Saul M. Kassin is the 2017 recipient of this award for his extensive scholarship into understanding how and why suspects make false confessions, leading to greater understanding of the science of confessions and reforms to policy and practice. Kassin’s award citation, biography, and a selected bibliography are presented here.
