Forensic Psychology - Geographical Profiling - Certificate

Geographic profiling is a criminal investigative methodology that analyses the locations of a connected series of crimes to determine the most probable area of offender residence.

Typically used in cases of serial murder or rape (but also arson, bombing, robbery, terrorism and other crimes), the technique helps police detectives prioritize information in large-scale major crime investigations that often involve hundreds or thousands of suspects and tips.
