In collaboration, the Centre for Forensic and Criminological Psychology, University of Birmingham, and the Centre for Forensic Linguistics at Aston University are offering a four-day event providing information and practical sessions on new and emerging techniques to assist in the investigation of sexual crime.

Sessions will include: 

  • Behavioural linkage of sexual crime
  • Using language to link crimes
  • The analysis of interview of victims of sexual crime
  • The use of video interviews of suspects as evidence in court
  • Combating rape stereotypes
  • Analysis of online chat in cases of grooming

We expect our event to be of great interest to professionals working within the police, those working in our legal system where evidence based on these novel techniques is now being introduced, and students, academics and researchers in the fields of forensic linguistics, forensic psychology, criminology and crime science.

Our event will be delivered by internationally recognised experts in these techniques. Sessions will include practical and computer-based workshops, and case studies.
