This course exposes students to the role of criminal profiling and investigative analysis within the Criminal Justice System. Attention is given to multidisciplinary approaches and processes involved in criminal profiling and intelligence-led investigation, including crime scene analysis, witness accounts, and victimology, to infer motive and characteristics of the perpetrator. Crime examples are used to illustrate the application of these processes from investigation through to corrections. The role, and challenges, of risk prediction, eyewitness and expert testimony are also considered.
