In addition to refined approaches towards victimology, crime scene analysis, motivation and case linkage, a chapter on sexual deviance has been added as well. With prior edition in wide use as a primary text in criminal justice, law, criminology, and behavioral science programs around the world, Criminal Profiling, Fourth Edition remains essential for students and professionals alike. Outlines the scientific principles and practice standards of BEA-oriented criminal profiling, with an emphasis on applying theory to real cases.

Das rekonstruierte Tatverhalten eines Gewaltverbrechers liefert einem Criminal-Profiler" angeblich samtliche Informationen um detaillierte Aussagen uber Geschlecht, Alter, Lebensraum, Intelligenz, Charakter, Personlichkeitsstruktur, usw. generieren zu konnen. Criminal Profiling entwickelte sich zu einer Disziplin, welche zahlreiche akademische und wissenschaftliche Bereiche impliziert. Im Verlauf der Entwicklung dieser Disziplin kristallisierten sich zwei verschiedene Vorgehensweisen zur Profilerstellung heraus. Zum einen die induktive Profilerstellung, welche auf statistische und empirische Daten, sowie auf die individuellen Erfahrungswerte und Intuitionen des jeweiligen Profilers basiert. Zum anderen der deduktive Ansatz, nach dem jeder Fall als einzigartig angesehen wird. Die Profilerstellung erfolgt hier nach streng logischen Schlussfolgerungen und Syllogismen, basierend auf den vorgefundenen Tatortspuren und Beweisen. In dieser Arbeit werden beide Methoden vorgestellt. Es wird auch aufgezeigt, mit welchen psychologischen und methodischen Werkzeugen Profiler vorgehen, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien dieser Tatigkeit zugrunde liegen und wo die Grenzen liegen.

The technique commonly referred to as ‘criminal profiling’ is one in which crime behaviours are evaluated to predict the likely attributes of an offender. In practice, the technique has enjoyed steady growth and interest over the past three decades. The present volume draws together research from scholars and practitioners from across the globe that examines from a range of multidisciplinary perspectives the use, application and value of this form of profiling. The material canvassed throughout this text not only examines research and theoretical principles for the assessment of crimes, but extends to exploring the range of issues facing the theoretical development of criminal profiling and its practical, legal and professional practice. Topics include the examination of homicidal syndromes, the association of crime scene behavior patterns with offender characteristics, criminal propensity and opportunity, the identification of crimes committed by the same offender, the legal admissibility of profiling, its accuracy, and the problems confronting the contemporary practice of criminal profiling. This volume is likely to become an essential reference for forensic practitioners and students alike operating in the fields of criminology, law and policing and anyone with a genuine interest in the investigation and resolution of violent crime.

Akademische Arbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Forensische Psychologie, Strafvollzug, Note: 1,5 (CH:5,5), Universität Basel (Institut für Psychologie), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Unter Criminal Profiling versteht man die Zusammenstellung von möglichen Persönlichkeitsmerkmalen, Verhaltensauffälligkeiten und Lebensumstände eines unbekannten Täters auf Grund genauer Analyse der Tatortspuren, sowie weiterer kriminalistischer und viktimiologischer Erhebungen (Meyer 2002). Nicht zuletzt die in jüngster Verhangenheit erfolgreich lancierten Kinofilme „Das Schweigen der Lämmer“, „Hannibal“ und TV-Serien wie beispielsweise „Profilier“ und „Das FBI ermittelt“ haben zu einem wahren Boom des Phänomens „Profiling“ beigetragen. Der ermittelnde „Profiler“ wird in den populärwissenschaftlichen Beiträgen sehr häufig als eine Art Wahrsager dargestellt, welcher scheinbar mittels hellseherischer Eingebung aus minimalen Tatortspuren eine nahezu perfekte Rekonstruktion des Geschehens inklusive einer detaillierten Täterbeschreibung erstellen kann. Doch was steckt hinter dem mystischen Schleier dieser hellseherisch anmutenden Ermittler? Welche konkreten Vorgehensweisen und Instrumente werden verwendet? Wie valid und reliabel sind die Methoden? Diese Arbeit liefert zunächst einen historischen Abriss über die Entwicklung dieser noch jungen Disziplin. Im weiteren Verlauf soll das Criminal Profiling definiert werden und ein Überblick über Ziele, Anwendungsgebiete, theoretische Prämissen und Aspekte wie das Tatortverhalten oder die Täterhandschrift gegeben werden.

Complex and controversial, hackers possess a wily, fascinating talent, the machinations of which are shrouded in secrecy. Providing in-depth exploration into this largely uncharted territory, Profiling Hackers: The Science of Criminal Profiling as Applied to the World of Hacking offers insight into the hacking realm by telling attention-grabbing tales about bizarre characters that practice hacking as an art. Focusing on the relationship between technology and crime and drawn from the research conducted by the Hackers Profiling Project (HPP), this volume applies the behavioral science of criminal profiling to the world of internet predators. The authors reveal hidden aspects of the cyber-crime underground, answering questions such as: Who is a real hacker? What life does a hacker lead when not on-line? Is it possible to determine a hacker’s profile on the basis of his behavior or types of intrusion? What is the motive behind phishing, pharming, viruses, and worms? After gaining notoriety for breaking into many high-profile computer systems, the Italian hacker Raoul Chiesa turned to ethical hacking in 1995. Today he uses his skills and abilities to find ways to protect networks and computer systems. Stefania Ducci is a member of the Counter Human Trafficking and Emerging Crimes Unit at the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI). Silvio Ciappi is a criminologist who lectures at the University of Pisa and studies criminal profiling. These three experts with vastly different backgrounds explore the clandestine network of cyber-criminals, providing an unparalleled glimpse into the secret lives of these malevolent individuals.
