For this assignment, write a 4–5 page informative essay on the approaches to psychological profiling. In your essay, include the following.
Types of Profiles:
Equivocal death profiling
Crime scene profiling
Describe how a thorough psychological profile can be created. For example, Offender Profiling is a collection of information by law enforcement agencies, which in turn is translated into a general description of a specific type of person that might commit a certain crime. Combining Offender Profiling with Victim Profiling, personality and behavioral characteristics of the victim can be tied to a certain type of offender. When you combine both strategies, you will produce a stronger profile.
Provide an example of each profile used and show how they can be combined, using inductive reasoning, to produce a psychological profile. Inductive reasoning will take multiple thoughts to combine a specific conclusion.
