In this book, renowned profiler Dr. Richard Kocsis presents a distinct approach to profiling called Crime Action Profiling or CAP. The volume explains the scope and methodology employed in the studies that the author has undertaken over the past decade and a half. CAP adopts the view that profiling essentially represents a psychological technique that has its foundations in the disciplinary knowledge of forensic psychology.
Combines vast empirical research with the author's personal experiences
Draws together for the time the characteristics of the CAP approach to profiling violent crimes
Describes for the experienced and lay person how to use the various CAP models to profile a particular crime without necessarily needing to comprehend how each model was originally built
