From the Back Cover:

Until the development of Investigative Psychology, 'profiling' was based on little more than the informedpersonal expertise of experienced detectives. Spearheaded by DavidCanter and his associates, the new discipline of InvestigativePsychology has emerged out of a quarter century of research andinvolvement in many actual cases.

This ground-breaking text is the first to provide a detailedoverview of the field, from the earliest work through to recentstudies, including descriptions of previously unpublished internalreports. Crucially it provides a framework for students to explorethis exciting terrain, combining Narrative Theory and an ActionSystems framework. It includes empirically tested models forOffender Profiling and guidance for investigations, as well as anagenda for research in Investigative Psychology.

Investigative Psychology features:

  • The full range of crimes from fraud to terrorism, includingburglary, serial killing, arson, rape, and organised crime.
  • Important methodologies including multi-dimensional scaling andthe Radex approach as well as Social Network Analysis.
  • Geographical Offender Profiling, supported by detailed analysisof the underlying psychological processes that make this such avaluable investigative decision support tool.
  • The full range of investigative activities, including effectiveinformation collection, detecting deception and the development ofdecision support systems.

In effect, this text introduces an exciting new paradigm for awide range of psychological contributions to all forms ofinvestigation within and outside of law enforcement. Each chapterhas actual cases and quotations from offenders and ends withquestions for discussion and research, making this a valuable textfor undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Applied and ForensicPsychology, Criminology, Socio-Legal Studies and relateddisciplines.

Synopsis:

This is the first academic textbook for the new strand of psychological science called "Investigative Psychology". It draws upon over 20 years of research studies and professional reports as well as unpublished material. This research is gradually providing solutions for crimes from arson or burglary to stalking and serial killing. Throughout, it is structured according to the operational challenges the research informs. These extend beyond what can be inferred about a perpetrator's likely characteristics, to questions about suspects, linking offences to a common offender, locating an offender's likely home base and predicting where and when the next offence will be committed. Additionally, the book provides a comprehensive commentary on the processes central to the effective investigation and successful prosecution of crime. Three broad processes are considered: the retrieval, evaluation and utilization of investigative information; strategic and tactical decision-making in investigations; and the preparation and presentation of the legal case in court. The book recognizes that this is a lively new area of activity and captures the debates inherent in this developing domain.

The topics discussed include the impact of genetics, social processes and eyewitness testimony, amongst others.
