Many tools are available to assist with the investigation and adjudication of crime. Crime analysis is an important tool in many aspects of criminal justice and allows police to better direct their limited resources. However, crime analysis is a broad term and there are many different types of crime analysis practiced by many professionals. Social scientists have a lot to offer in this regard too through the use of tools such as Applied Crime Analysis (ACA) and Criminal Profiling, with the latter being one type of crime analysis. The purpose of this subject is to introduce students to the basic concepts of logic and reasoning, the role of physical evidence, victimology and the crime scene, and the overall process of crime analysis from the social scientist’s perspective. The similarities and differences between ACA and criminal profiling will also be addressed at length.
