Forming a psychological profile of the perpetrator of a crime or an important figure in negotiations is essential for minimizing damage to people or property. On the whole, this is based on the characteristics of the crime scene, informed by a thorough analysis of the history of similar events.
Other Types of Profiling
Specialist knowledge enables types of profiling other than the more generic description given above, often involving criminal or terrorist organizations. These cases allow for perpetrator-specific profiling, informed by existing knowledge of the individual, small group, cult, prison gang or criminal organization involved. This enables perpetrators to be identified more quickly, and the addition of real-time profiling allows for uniquely-tailored negotiations in unfolding situations.
