9780127050409: Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis

This work is centered on the Deductive Profiling method developed by the author. The method based on forensic evidence and does not involve the use of statistically-generated, or inductive, profiles. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behavioural evidence that must be assessed apart from other seemingly like crimes. Its key themes include reliance upon forensic evidence to establish behaviours, the importance of professional objectivity, and the use of profiling as an investigative process rather than a last resort Chapters include: criminal profiling and the law; cases that benefit from profiling; cyberpatterns - criminal behaviour on the Internet; and trial strategy.

Review:

From the forward

"Criminal Profiling is a serious and long overdue effort at structuring a body of knowledge into a cohesive subject. Brent Turvey has provided the reader with a roadmap to comprehending the principles underlying criminal profiling. The knowledge gleaned from this book can only strengthen the foundational skills of the prospective and active criminal investigator." -Richard Saferstein, PhD -- Richard Saferstein, PhD

This book should be reviewed by anyone intent on becoming a professional criminal profiler. -- American Journal of Psychiatry, September 6, 2000

From the Publisher:

A must-have resource for those interested in the subject.
Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis is a unique work centered on the Deductive Profiling method developed by the author. Deductive Profiling is different from other forms of profiling because it centers the process on forensic evidence and does not involve the use of averaged, statistical profiles. It approaches each criminal incident as its own universe of behaviors and relationships. Criminal Profiling includes a thorough rendering of the features of the deductive profiling method, an overview of the legal aspects involved in profiling, and an exploration into specific profiling issues that arise in different types of serial crime. It also includes the author's unique analysis of the Whitechapel Murders (Jack the Ripper) of 1888 and the JonBenet Ramsey homicide of 1996. Criminal Profiling is a perfect companion for students and professionals in the law enforcement, mental health, criminological, and legal communities.
