Criminal profilers have a duty to be fully versed in the prevalence, nature, and variety of sex crimes that may be encountered in research and casework. Those who enter the profession ignorant of the subject do it a disservice, and those who avoid study of the subject would do best to leave it immediately. One cannot be a competent criminal investigator or criminal profiler without significant exposure to, and a healthy appreciation of, human sexuality and its criminal manifestations.
