What is Investigative Psychology?
sp
A major and rapidly expanding sub-discipline of Forensic and Criminal Psychology.

Originally developed to provide a scientific approach to ‘offender profiling’, in line with David Canter’s conviction that any contributions made by psychologists to the police or legal process must have an empirical, systematic, scientific basis, Investigative Psychology (IP) has now developed to cover all contributions that psychologists & other social scientists make to investigations & legal cases:


Investigative Inferences (’offender profiling’)
sp
Investigative Psychologists explore styles and patterns of criminal actions in all types of offences, from arson to serial killing, stalking, kidnapping or terrorism, determining how these relate to the offender’s characteristics; this includes geographical profiling

The Investigation Process
sp
Investigative Psychologists study Detective decision-making and Investigative strategies. They develop procedures for suspect interviewing and the Prediction of Violence.

Investigative & Legal Material
spacer
Investigative Psychologists examine the material used during the investigation and presented in court to Detect Deception and identify False Allegations or False Confessions, Evaluate Eyewitness Testimony or questioned authorship by Forensic psycholinguistics
