Offender profiling is an important investigative tool, providing law enforcement with detailed information about the behavior of the unknown individual(s) responsible for a crime under investigation. Unfortunately, offender profiling is often done ineffectively. This volume introduces alternative approaches to improving crime investigation methodology and the generation of offender profiles. Articles by various contributors describe how the collaboration between criminal psychology and various disciplines and forensic science methods improves criminal profiling. Actual case studies demonstrate how specific procedures relate to police investigations.
