Investigative Psychology, Focus on Financial Crime
  • Apr 18, 2024
  • Latest News

We are pleased to announce that Professor Ian Ross has authored ‘Investigative Psychology, Focus on Financial Crime’, which will be published later this year. Ian is an Investigative Psychologist. Professor of International Law and Financial Crimes expert.

Investigative Psychology as a scientific discipline is the most pertinent in supporting criminal investigations and profiling. Profiling to a forensic level, that is.

Investigative Psychology is not especially concerned with rehabilitation as is forensic, criminal, and cognitive psychology. But this crucial area of work was in need of a specific text, with financial crimes front and centre. I trust my book serves this need.

This work is modelled on a range of complex legal, political, and doctrinal concepts. Perspectives to assist readers, especially professionals involved with supporting investigations or defending malevolent accusations, either at organisational level or to present to the courts.

The content is bolstered by three new investigative ‘tools’ and models. Including the "CC1 Investigations Toolkit."
