Crime Mapping and Geographic Profiling

Crime maps display data on offenses,
including the type of crime, and the locations and times the offenses occurred.
One application of crime mapping is geographic profiling, a technique that uses
crime maps to identify geographic areas where serial offenders are likely to
reside or frequent. Suspects may be “prioritized” depending on how
close they live to a high-crime area. Geographic profiling has had varying
degrees of success. As with all areas of criminal profiling, there are
questions about accuracy, usefulness, and biases inherent in geographic
profiling. Critics say that geographic factors should be combined with a number
of other contributing situational and behavioral factors beyond simply a
suspect’s location on a map.

For this Discussion, review the media
piece “Crime Mapping.” Consider whether or not the interrogation of
the woman in the media piece was justified based on the information presented
from the crime mapping.
