Session 6 (2-Day): The Violent Offender: Criminal Profiling and Major Case Management
This two-day course will present the behavior and thought process of various types of violent offenders and serial, mass, and spree killers, which is based on research experience of FBI and law enforcement agencies as they investigate and prosecute these subjects. To understand this behavior, it will be necessary to observe their actions in violent crimes. Crime scene photos will be used to demonstrate behavior, and interviews of subjects will be discussed, which may not be appropriate for younger attendees. The use of a profile to assist in the identification of an unknown subject, the structure of an interview, and the interaction with prosecutors and the media will be presented.
Monday The nature of crime and justice in America; An examination of the violent offender: Motives, decision making, and efforts to avoid detection; Our history and where we hope to go with our research; Case studies of serial killers and their decision making
