Criminal investigators should identify the offender by use of following aspects: the nature of the crime, characteristics of the crime scene (traces and evidences collected from the crime scene, the time when the crime was committed, the location of the crime scene), and the type and characteristics of victims being targeted. They have to determine the sex, age, profession, place of living, motives and other facts about perpetrator and his mind (is he organized, disorganized, or mixed), which are relevant for its discovering and catching. This kind of process or activity of developing and making profile of an offender is called criminal profiling from crime scene analysis.

There are different types of profiling which are separated based on their origins, connections to the sciences and specifics, such as: crime scene profiling, criminal (offender) profiling, psychological profiling, and geographic profiling.
