Consulting & Training for Law Enforcement & Intelligence Agencies
Criminal Investigative Analysis & Profiling
Serial offenders (with no prior relationship to their victims), Lone Wolf Terrorism and new forms of Cybercrime are phenomena, that force Law Enforcement & Intelligence Agencies to develop new methods. “Profiling” is only one aspect of Criminal Investigative Analysis. Profiling is the result, based on an analysis process. Without valid data on the sequence of events (what happened and in what order), no conclusions can be drawn about profile, motive or possible previous convictions. Mark T. Hofmann is a Crime- & Intelligence Analyst, trained and certified in the US. He is university lecturer for Behavioral- & Cyber Psychology and has met criminals, psychopaths and hackers to understand the inside perspective. He is an expert in psychological aspects. His approach and training is based on four key components:
1.Fundamentals of Logicical Thinking & Reasoning (Induction, Deduction and Scientific Principles).
2.Psychology applied to Ivestigations (It is about “translating” current research and knowledge about Psychopathy or Narcissism into concrete investigative approaches and/or identifiable Red Flags).
3. Inside knowledge from Interviews with non-incarcerated offenders (Information from own research, Darknet Analysis, and conversations with non-incarcerated criminals, – knowledge that cannot be found in studies and books).
4. Case Linkage, Detecting Crime Series and Predictive Profiling through advanced data analysis, standardization, networking, and Artificial Intelligence.
