Applications of geographic profiling 

Geographic profiling is an investigative technique that uses the locations of a connected series of crime to work out where an offender most likely lives, or bases their activities from. 

The application of geographic profiling has been significant in a number of major serial crime investigations and is increasingly being used for volume crime. The principles of geographic profiling have also been applied to non-serial crime investigations. 

Since we began running this course in 2010, police forces have used their certified analysts to apply geographic profiling to the following types of investigation: 

  • Residential burglary
  • Robbery against the person
  • Theft from the person
  • Residential burglary where vehicle keys have been targeted and a vehicle stolen
  • Metal theft on railway lines
  • Catalytic converter theft
  • Arson (wheelie-bin fires)
  • Arson to commercial buildings
  • Distraction burglary
  • Criminal damage to dwellings
  • Theft of fuel from heating tanks and vehicles
  • Robbery of commercial premises
