Behavioural Investigative Advisors in the UK – Key Points:
  • BIAs are a routine part of serious crime investigations
  • There are 5 full-time NCOF BIAs and 30+ external BIAs
  • BIAs accessed through NCOF HD / RA – Team approach
  • BIAs are not all the same and provide a range of services
  • BIAs should recognize the limitations of their expertise
  • BIAs should integrate their advice into the investigation
  • Advice is intelligence NOT evidence
  • Decision support NOT decision making
  • Experience, theory, consultation, research & DBs
  • All BIAs now work to a set of working practices
  • All BIAs’ work is subject to audit and evaluation
  • Measures introduced by ACPO in April 2001

“....the Imiela case breaks all the rules and regulations. There is no pattern. What we are having to do is expand our perceptions and it gets difficult doing profiles. We will have to expand our boundaries.”

Emerging Issues:
  • Continuing professional development
    • Transparency, Academic links, common goals
  • Revisit behavioural consistency and linkage
    • What cases are we looking at when assessing similarity?
  • Revisit background characteristics
    • Do we only know about criminal criminals?
  • Impact of advancements in forensic techniques
    • What cases are BIAs likely to be faced with?
  • Lateral thinking in offender identification
    • We need to do more than predict offender backgrounds
  • Data, data, data
    • SCAS currently supporting 20+ research projects
