Offender Profiling, or behavioral crime scene analysis, is an investigative tool that aims to assist law enforcement by helping to narrow down the suspect pool by prioritizing the most likely suspect based on an analysis of the behavioral patterns they leave at the crime scene.
This talk will discuss the most important aspects of the crime scene that can help identify a series, including the nature of the sexual activity, how the sexual activity is expressed in the lethality of the crime, and also how the sexual component may be expressed through the type of victim targeted. We will then discuss how identifying an offender’s crime series type can help profile the most likely offender to narrow down the suspect pool during investigations.
- Learn about the psychological basis for the (A)ctions to (C)haracteristics equation that underlies the scientific profiling process
- Understand how behavioral patterns can help identify a series, even when on the surface they look different
- Understand how behavioral patterns can help distinguish one series from another, even when they on the surface look similar
- Understand how different types of offenders can be profiled based on how they commit different types of series
