Week 2: Profiling and Typologies
Serial and mass murderers not only prey on innocent victims, but also incite a considerable amount of fear and cost society millions of dollars annually. Therefore, apprehending these violent offenders is critically important for protecting citizens, reducing fear, and decreasing costs. Profiling can be an integral tool in apprehending serial and mass murderers. However, most people are unaware of how criminal profilers construct profiles of serial and mass murderers without ever interviewing them. How are profilers able to provide law enforcement agents with physical descriptions of serial and mass murderers without ever meeting the offenders? How can profilers use crime scene evidence to create a profile of the serial or mass murderer? Although the answers to these questions vary, they all rely on the notion of the criminal typology. This week, you examine the typologies in criminal profiling. In addition, you consider strengths and weaknesses of using typologies in criminal profiling.
Apply profiling typologies to serial and mass murderers
Analyze the strengths and limitations of profiling
Identify and apply typologies related to profiling serial and mass murderers
For this weekâ€™s assignments and discussion board posts.
Please use the information in Chapter 5 to develop an actual profile of the killer. What are the personal and social (demographic) characteristics of this killer? What are the personal characteristics of an organized killer? The Killers personal and social characteristics would be the killerâ€™s profile. Please discuss these characteristics in detail. Please be sure to use the FBIâ€™s Organzied/Disorganized Typology of Serial Killers to help you write your answer. Use the textbook and read my course announcements! Do not use the Holmes typology to develop a profile. Note: Be sure to read the transcripts of all 3 crime scenes found in Week 2 resources (scroll down to the bottom).

Although typologies are widely used to create accurate profiles of violent offenders, especially serial and mass murderers, they usually do not lead to the immediate apprehension of a murderer. In fact in some cases, the use of typologies can lead to inaccurate profiles that can impede the identification and apprehension of a murderer. For example, many profilers incorrectly identified the D.C. Snipers as white males. Only after they were apprehended was it obvious that the vast majority of criminal profilers were wrong. The number of innocent lives that could have been saved had the race of the D.C. Snipers been correctly identified is unknown. Despite limitations, typologies are extremely useful to criminal profilers in attempting to create profiles of serial and mass murderers. Without typologies, profilers would be “shooting in the dark” when trying to identify the characteristics of murderers.
