Forensic psychology studies the thoughts and motives behind a criminal’s actions. Before considering how to catch a suspect, forensic psychologists contemplate why the act was committed. Advanced Private Investigator & Security look at sources of extreme stress in the perpetrator’s life that might push them to act violently and/or commit crimes. We can also observe the scene of the crime, which can indicate whether the act was predetermined or done out of a burst of emotion.
