Criminal Profiling: Principles and Practice provides a compendium of original scientific research on constructing a criminal profile for crimes that are not readily resolvable by conventional police investigative methods. Leading profiling expert Richard N. Kocsis, PhD, utilizes a distinct approach referred to as Crime Action Profiling (CAP), a technique that has its foundations in the disciplinary knowledge of forensic psychology. The initial four chapters examine the skills, accuracy, components, and processes surrounding the construction of a criminal profile. The next two chapters focus on CAP research, the methods developed for the profiling of violent crimes and describing a systematic method for the interpretation and use of the CAP models. The subsequent three chapters canvass the respective CAP studies undertaken for crimes of serial rape, serial/sexual murder, and serial arson. An explanation for how each of the models is developed is also given. The final chapters of the book are devoted to the geographical analysis of crime patterns and to a discussion of the format conventions and procedural guidelines for developing a criminal profile. Offering a scientifically grounded method for the construction of a criminal profile, Criminal Profiling: Principles and Practice provides law enforcement personnel, forensic psychologists and psychiatrists, criminologists, and forensic investigators with a step-by-step, practical guide for understanding and applying CAP techniques for the construction of a criminal profile in a systematic and replicable manner.

Das rekonstruierte Tatverhalten eines Gewaltverbrechers liefert einem Criminal-Profiler" angeblich samtliche Informationen um detaillierte Aussagen uber Geschlecht, Alter, Lebensraum, Intelligenz, Charakter, Personlichkeitsstruktur, usw. generieren zu konnen. Criminal Profiling entwickelte sich zu einer Disziplin, welche zahlreiche akademische und wissenschaftliche Bereiche impliziert. Im Verlauf der Entwicklung dieser Disziplin kristallisierten sich zwei verschiedene Vorgehensweisen zur Profilerstellung heraus. Zum einen die induktive Profilerstellung, welche auf statistische und empirische Daten, sowie auf die individuellen Erfahrungswerte und Intuitionen des jeweiligen Profilers basiert. Zum anderen der deduktive Ansatz, nach dem jeder Fall als einzigartig angesehen wird. Die Profilerstellung erfolgt hier nach streng logischen Schlussfolgerungen und Syllogismen, basierend auf den vorgefundenen Tatortspuren und Beweisen. In dieser Arbeit werden beide Methoden vorgestellt. Es wird auch aufgezeigt, mit welchen psychologischen und methodischen Werkzeugen Profiler vorgehen, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien dieser Tatigkeit zugrunde liegen und wo die Grenzen liegen.

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Forensische Psychologie, Strafvollzug, Note: 1,5 (CH:5,5), Universität Basel (Institut für Psychologie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Criminal Profiling folgt keinem einheitlichen Schema. Vielmehr zeigen sich aufgrund der fachübergreifenden und eklektizistischen Entwicklung dieser Disziplin eine Vielzahl von Methoden und Modellen. Dies spiegelt sich auch in der einschlägigen Literatur wider (McGarth 2000). Trotz all der Differenzen lassen sich zwei generell unterschiedliche Philosophien herausarbeiten: - Induktives Profiling: Profilerstellung auf Basis statistisch/empirischer Daten oder aufgrund von Erfahrungswerten und Intuition des Profilers. - Deduktives Profiling: Profilerstellung auf Basis logischer Syllogismen, die sich aus den physischen Tatortspuren ergeben. In der folgenden Arbeit sollen nun die beiden Methoden ausführlich erläutert und anhand von diversen Studien kommentiert werden.

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Forensische Psychologie, Strafvollzug, Note: 1,5 (CH:5,5), Universität Basel (Institut für Psychologie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Unter Criminal Profiling versteht man die Zusammenstellung von möglichen Persönlichkeitsmerkmalen, Verhaltensauffälligkeiten und Lebensumstände eines unbekannten Täters auf Grund genauer Analyse der Tatortspuren, sowie weiterer kriminalistischer und viktimiologischer Erhebungen (Meyer 2002). Nicht zuletzt die in jüngster Verhangenheit erfolgreich lancierten Kinofilme „Das Schweigen der Lämmer“, „Hannibal“ und TV-Serien wie beispielsweise „Profilier“ und „Das FBI ermittelt“ haben zu einem wahren Boom des Phänomens „Profiling“ beigetragen. Der ermittelnde „Profiler“ wird in den populärwissenschaftlichen Beiträgen sehr häufig als eine Art Wahrsager dargestellt, welcher scheinbar mittels hellseherischer Eingebung aus minimalen Tatortspuren eine nahezu perfekte Rekonstruktion des Geschehens inklusive einer detaillierten Täterbeschreibung erstellen kann. Doch was steckt hinter dem mystischen Schleier dieser hellseherisch anmutenden Ermittler? Welche konkreten Vorgehensweisen und Instrumente werden verwendet? Wie valid und reliabel sind die Methoden? Diese Arbeit liefert zunächst einen historischen Abriss über die Entwicklung dieser noch jungen Disziplin. Im weiteren Verlauf soll das Criminal Profiling definiert werden und ein Überblick über Ziele, Anwendungsgebiete, theoretische Prämissen und Aspekte wie das Tatortverhalten oder die Täterhandschrift gegeben werden.

Many law enforcement agencies are now analyzing where a crime is committed, to develop predictions on the offender, their location and other factors that could help with the investigation. Known as Geographical Offender Profiling (GOP), this approach relies on a combination of principles and methodologies drawn from many different disciplines, including psychology, geography, criminology and forensic science. This book brings together a cross-section of the major papers published in the field of GOP to explain the scope and application of GOP in different criminal contexts. For the first time some widely quoted but difficult to obtain 'classic' papers have been published together with an introduction that provides an up-to-the-minute context and an extensive bibliography of the most relevant publications in this burgeoning area of study.

What exactly is criminal profiling and what are the different approaches used by police forces all over the world? Best selling writer David E. Malocco, author of Forensic Science: Crime Scene Analysis and How to Commit the Perfect Murder has published the fourth book in the hugely successful Student Guides Simplified series. Following on from A Brief History of Criminal Profiling which deals with the evolution of profiling this book discuses, examines and analyses four different approaches to criminal profiling. The Diagnostic Evaluation approach began in the 1950s with New York psychiatrist Dr. James Brussel being asked to input on two high profile cases, the Mad Bomber of New York, and the Boston Strangler. The first case proved to be a spectacular success with Brussel providing a classic text book profile right down to how the suspect dressed. But the failure of a high profile team of psychiatrists, psychologists and anthropologists to catch the Boston Strangler or even identify whether the authorities should be looking for one or more suspects damaged the credibility of the diagnostic evaluation approach. The FBI then decided that a retreat to good old classic detective work was necessary and from this the Crime Scene Analysis approach developed. The author examines three serial killer cases where this approach was used, Richard Trent Chase, Gary Ridgway and Dennis Rader. However, in respect of the above three case studies the profile for Richard Trenton Chase was accurate and the case was solved; the profile of Gary Ridgway was inaccurate and the profile did not lead to the arrest of the suspect; and in the Dennis Rader case the profile was ambiguous and it did not lead to the arrest of the suspect. The FBI continue to develop their model and currently take the lead in research on the development of criminal personality profiling. But, while the FBI model of profiling still remains highly influential, another form of profiling, emanating from Britain, and called investigative psychology (IP), pioneered by Professor David Canter, is now beginning to rival and some argue, surpass, the FBI approach. Investigative psychology is now the new kid on the block. The Investigative Psychology approach otherwise known as the statistical-research approach to criminal profiling, claims to be grounded in scientific methodology and, is based on the multivariate analysis of the behavioral and other crime scene data to infer the characteristics, and psychological process of the unsub. Meanwhile, the fourth approach, Geographical Profiling, pioneered by Kim Rossmo appears to be the front runner with Police agencies around the world using several major software programs to perform geographic profiling tasks, such as Rigel(r), Predator, CrimeStat, and Dragnet. These software programs can help in identifying if a series of crimes are linked, that is, carried out by the same offender or offenders. Each approach is examined in detail making this book an essential introduction to anyone studying or interested in criminal profilin
