Many law enforcement agencies throughout the world now analyse where an offender commits crimes in order to develop predictions of the sort of person the offender is, where s/he may be located and other aspects of value to investigations. Known as Geographical Offender Profiling (GOP), the application of this approach relies on a combination of principles and methodologies drawn from many different disciplines, including psychology, geography, criminology and forensic science. It is thus of academic interest to all those disciplines as well as practical significance to many different investigators.This book brings together a cross-section of the major papers published in the field that indicate the ways in which GOP has and can be utilized in many different criminal contexts - including some widely quoted but difficult to obtain 'classic' papers, together with an introduction that puts the papers into an overall framework and a concluding extensive bibliography of the publications relevant to this rapidly growing area.
