Learn more about the criminal investigative process at American Military University’s (AMU) live webcast event:
Principles of Criminal Investigative Analysis (CIA)
Wednesday, July 14, 2010 – 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET

Join American Military University for this live event presenting the general principles of Criminal Investigative Analysis (CIA), otherwise known as Profiling. This analysis focuses on the perpetrator’s behavior, which in turn reveals certain aspects of his/her personality. A trained investigator can use this technique to link cases in a pattern, include or exclude cases from those patterns, identify likely suspects, and exclude others. These techniques are also useful in developing interviewing strategies. After a presentation of the general principles, we will examine CIA’s use in two types of investigations where it has been particularly useful: arson and serial sexual assault.

Register today to learn more about the fascinating processes that go into place to catch criminals.
