Investigative Psychology – Remit of Expert Evidence
Expert Investigative Psychological testimony is relevant to three broad areas, for all types of crime:
- The nature of the defendant/ likely perpetrator, including issues of linked offences
- The integrity of the investigative process including the interview
- The credibility of evidence and testimony, incl. questioned authorship, jury decision-making
For recent types of expert evidence provided by Professor Canter, see Professional Services > Evidence to the Courts.
