Criminal Profiling: An Introduction to Behavioral Evidence Analysis, Fourth Edition, provides an introduction to the behavioral evidence analysis (BEA) method of criminal profiling.
The book begins with discussions regarding the method of criminal profiling; the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed by criminal profilers; educational requirements; and the importance of cultivating experience through formal internships, mentoring, on-the-job training, and real life.
The remainder of the book is organized into five sections. Section 1 presents an overview of criminal profiling, covering its history; the use of the scientific method, logic, and cognition; alternative methods of criminal profiling; forensic psychology and forensic psychiatry; and an introduction to BEA and crime scene analysis. Section 2 deals with the principles of forensic victimology and discusses the concepts of sexual deviance, sexual asphyxia, and false reports. Section 3 covers crime scene analysis, crime reconstruction, crime scene characteristics, interpreting motive, offender modus operandi and signature, and cybercrime. Section 4 deals with offender characteristics, including psychopathy, sadism, domestic homicide, mass murder, and serial cases. Section 5 considers professional issues, such as ethical guidelines for profilers and the admissibility of criminal profiling evidence.
