Criminal Profiling Promotion

Criminal profilers draw on sociological, psychological, biological, environmental and individual factors to develop profiles of perpetrators, victims and places to assist law enforcement in developing proactive approaches to offender detection and apprehension.  Although many law enforcement agencies worldwide rely on criminal profiling services a limited number of offender profilers are available to law enforcement agencies.   

Criminologist AU promotes the benefits of establishing a criminal profiling unit in Australia and to attract suitably qualified criminal profilers with knowledge of the unique characteristics of prolific and serious offenders in the Southern hemisphere.  Criminologist AU invites criminologists, investigators and forensic specialists to join Criminologist AU in promoting offender profiling as a reliable and needed service in crime fighting strategies in the Southern hemisphere.
