Description

Geographical offender profiling has useful investigative possibilities, but is limited by a number a prerequisites that have to be met by both the crime series and the offender. One of the key limitations of geographical offender profiling is that the crime series is committed by the endeavors of a single offender. While many (if not most) crimes are committed by groups of offenders, little is known about the possibilities of geographical group profiling. This paper presents a case study on geographical group profiling from various perspectives in order to examine both academic and practical implications.
