A phenomena that has captured the public attention through shows like Mindhunter to Criminal Minds, or iconic movies like Silence of the Lambs is Criminal Offender Profiling. In this segment Claire Parsons asks the big questions we all want to know: What is Criminal Offender Profiling? What do profilers do? And lastly, does it actually work? Getting advice from Professors all over the United Kingdom, this segment delves into the many facets and components that go into Criminal Offender Profiling. Generating a profile about an unknown perpetrator based on clues or evidence that might be found at the scene of the crime is just one element. This episode looks at various definitions and different approaches (Top-down vs. Bottom-up), as we search for the the answers of whether it works, and why as a society we are so interested.
