Abstract

This paper provides an introduction to the techniques used to teach Criminal Profiling and Analysis utilizing a unsolved sexual homicide case from the files of a local police department. The application of the ACETS model developed by Abaidoo and Wachniak is reviewed with the development of the course. The challenges of creating the collaborative effort with law enforcement and linking academic learning outcomes to a cold homicide case is revealed. Success and frustration experienced by students is noted as the critical thinking learning curve is rooted in a “real world” problem.
