Dangerous Minds: Criminal Profiling



  Profiling is a primes in which is based upon a belief that an individual’s behavior can be predicted; based on knowledge and the personality of the criminal. When it comes to criminal profiling, there are limits in which the behavior analysis towards the suspect brings hopes to law enforcement that could potentially help them aid their search and to narrow their search down to the find the individual who has committed the crime (Sample, I., 2010). A majority of all law enforcement and their activities occur once a crime has been committed, and they usually only have a small amount of time in order to try and capture the suspect. If the police are lucky enough to gain a case that is still within the early stages, it is a good but can become more crucial in capturing the individual (Gladwell, 2007).

  Criminal profiling intrigues me because it allows me to understand the full concepts in how a criminal can be captured by mere belief and profiling of the individual. I can learn the techniques involved while narrowing down suspects to ensure I can gain the proper path in capturing the correct suspect instead possibly obtaining one that is innocent. I learn how it is based on the premise that humans are creatures of habit and will follow a pattern of behavior. Profilers rely on the fact that normal human behavior; characteristics and patterns remain consistent, regardless of the action (Gladwell, 2007). A profile is a list of likely traits that the individual who committed the crime possesses. The purpose of the profile, like all other investigative tools, is to narrow the search parameters for police to a defined set of suspects that they can match to forensic or physical evidence if it has been recovered and is available (Gladwell, 2007).
