Open Eye: G-Men to Speak at OUPS Weekend ; Top Forensic Experts from US and Britain Are Booked for a Specialist Forensic Psychology Event


Gledhill, Vince, The Independent (London, England)


Forensic psychology experts Gregory Cooper and James Reese will travel from America to speak at this year's OU Psychological Society Summer Weekend.

Former special agents with the FBI, they will join six British specialists who have all done pivotal work in forensic psychology, to offer an insight into the world of the mindhunter at Nottingham University from 30 June to 2 July.

The British experts include Paul Britton, author of The Jigsaw Man. As Britain's foremost criminal psychologist, his expertise has been sought during investigations into more than 100 high-profile crimes. They include the murder of James Bulger, the abduction of baby Abbie Humphries, the killing of Rachel Nickel on Wimbledon Common, the West's House of Horror, the Green Chain Rapist and the Heinz baby food extortionist.

Professor Ken Peace, a Home Office authority on forensic psychology, is another speaker, as is Professor Geoff Beattie, a specialist in non- verbal communication, from Manchester University.

Also taking part are Professor Geoff Lindsey, of Warwick University, Dr Ian McKenzie, from the Institute of Criminal Justice and Dr Julian Boon of Leicester University. Professor Lindsey will talk about ethics in psychology and forensic psychology in particular.

Gregory M. Cooper served in various investigative and supervisory capacities with the FBI in Seattle, Washington, Los Angeles and California divisions, as well as the FBI Academy Training Division in Quantico, Virginia, during his time with the Bureau.

While at the National Centre for the Analysis of Violent Crimes he served as national manager of the Violent Criminal Apprehension Programme, supervisor of the Investigative Support Unit and as an instructor in criminal psychology, criminal investigative analysis and analytical aspects of criminal behaviour.

He is co-author of The Crime Classification Manual, a landmark book classifying homicide, arson, and sexual assault, and his expertise has been sought by law-enforcement agencies in the US and beyond on more than a thousand cases.

As an expert in crime scene analysis he has provided testimony on behavioural links in multiple murders and contributed to the conviction of serial killers.

Crimes he has worked on include murder, rape, kidnapping, product tampering, extortion, political corruption, arson, bombing, workplace violence, stalking, and false allegation.
