I’m going to talk about two passions of mine: Crime/thriller books/films/TV series and the idea of ‘Police profiling’. Police profiling is the idea that based on the characteristics of a crime, you can figure out who the perpetrator is. For example, whether they are single, middle aged, male or female etc. I will to discuss how police profiling gets portrayed in novels/films/TV series and determine how valuable the techniques used would be in an actual police investigation.
In August there have been three really interesting criminal cases that the media has been all over, and I want to talk about each. I am talking about Peter Sutcliffe, Brendan Dassey and Brock Turner.
