Analyzing Criminal Behavior through Psychological Profiling: A Law Enforcement Tool
The August GACP District 9 meeting will feature training provided by Dr. Janet Olivia, of Hiawassee, Georgia, a retired Inspector with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation is well known for her skills as behavioral scientist and criminal profiler. Dr. Oliva has more than 25 years of law enforcement experience, and was considered the state’s leading child abuse expert during her tenure with the GBI.
Dr. Oliva will discuss how services provided by criminal profilers to law enforcement can be used as an investigative tool to assist investigators in narrowing the focus of a criminal investigation, understanding the type of offender (via personal characteristics and traits) who could have committed a particular crime, conducting interviews/interrogations by providing case-specific interview strategies, psychological profiles of unknown offenders, and can also assist law enforcement agencies in cases involving unusual or rare phenomena/behavior.
Dr. Oliva will discuss services available through the International Criminal Investigative Analysis Fellowship (ICIAF), which has two trained profilers located in Georgia that are available to assist law enforcement and other criminal justice agencies when requested. The ICIAF is an international organization of criminal profilers from countries around the world who have been trained in the tenets of criminal investigative analysis established by the FBI’s original Behavioral Science Unit.
