Overview

Before police can solve a crime, they need to find their suspects. In especially difficult cases, law enforcement officials use criminal profiling to help catch their perpetrators. The science of criminal profiling combines forensics and psychology to understand the type of person who commits crimes. Through thoroughly-researched text, including informative quotes from experts in the field and statistical fact boxes, readers learn how profilers are able to use evidence to accurately determine an offender's age, motives, and state of mind. They also learn what to do to pursue a career in this field in the future.
