Discussion: Methods of Criminal Profiling

James Bond is the character I choice

There are different ways of approaching criminal behavior and evidence. A criminal investigative analyst may use different reasoning skills, methods, and approaches when analyzing a criminal case. The analyst may use empirically based information or group statistics to guide decisions, and conclusions may be based solely on the facts of a case. Is it professional, however, to go beyond statistics and facts and use experiences and education to guide criminal analysis in profiling?

In this Discussion, you will continue to use the character you selected in Week 1 as you analyze his or her approaches and methodology.

To prepare for this Discussion:

Review the Learning Resources concerning concepts of criminal profiling.

By Day 3

Post a response to the following:

Based on the character you selected in the Week 1 Discussion, explain how he/she approached profiling. Explain whether the character uses deductive or inductive reasoning, whether he/she uses the nomothetic or ideographic method, and whether he/she uses a clinical or actuarial approach. Provide examples to support your rationale for each.

  • Evaluate use of deductive or inductive reasoning in criminal profiling
  • Evaluate use of nomothetic or ideographic methods in criminal profiling
  • Evaluate use of clinical or actuarial approaches in criminal profiling
