Remit of Expert Evidence

Expert Investigative Psychological testimony is relevant to three broad areas, for all types of crime:

  1. The nature of the defendant/ likely perpetrator, including issues of linked offences
  2. The integrity of the investigative process including the interview
  3. The credibility of evidence and testimony, incl. questioned authorship, jury decision-making
