FBI College (Level 2-Grades 9 to 12)

Offender Profiling is a behavioral analysis method, which enables the researchers and the police forces all around the western world to identify, link and further analyze violent crimes and the behaviors or strategies of unknown offenders.
In an advanced Criminological Psychology Course we collect and use various data directly or indirectly from the crime scene, in order to portray thoroughly in a scientific manner, the various and often changing or evolving behaviors of an offender (evolution) and his/her interactions with their victims (victimology). Our students are presented with methods of approach, blitz attacks etc.
This workshop is strictly available to students from grades 9 to 12.
