This theory supports the situational crime prevention theory that crime is a choice and can be deterred through the removal of suitable targets or guardianship. Guardianship can be a security guard, a fence, a password or any other person or item that makes a target unsuitable due to increased chances of being caught or the offense too difficult.

Recently criminologists, law enforcement officials, and psychologists have all teamed together to take criminal profiling, which started out as an art and transform it into a reliable science. This science of psychology is used to track down criminals; solely based on behavior these profiles are able to predict what will happen
DNA evidence is vital in helping the search for truth in many criminal cases such as a murder case, rape case or up any serious case. The offenders of these cases often committed because they do not want people to see their crime event’s doing. Some case against life, the offenders are a highly skilled and cover their actions by destroying evidence.

Since the goal of the show is to provide an idea for what cops do, one would think that the depiction of who is arrested and what goes on is accurate to at least some degree.

There are some of the classic patterns such as directionality, cast-off bloodstains, swipe marks, pattern transfer, saturation, arterial patterns, drip patterns and other examples of bloodstain dynamics, which should be noted and documented by the crime scene investigator, when at the scene. (Bloodstain Pattern Analysis). (n.d.). Recording the bloodstain patterns, in the scene, is one of the important documentation of the investigation. This documentation of the investigation should be accomplished before anything is touched or moved at the scene.
Reaction Decisions made by officers in intense situations can be reviewed and evaluated. Constantly wearing body cameras could consider police responsible for their appropriate, and inappropriate, conduct. Imagine how body cameras could prevent cases like Baltimore and Ferguson, where there was no chance for the public to know what actually happened. Officers can no longer make false claims because video recording can be used as evidence to prove them
One of the reasons why criminal profiling can be useful in criminal investigations is that it helps investigators to apprehend the suspect without having to waste time. Since psychological and behavioral patterns can be traced, the suspect list can be narrowed, making the whole investigation process much shorter and simpler. A psychological picture can be formed by the profiler showing the type of offenders. Formation of profiles can direct and lead the whole investigation in finding the suspect by providing the investigators with the required information. This mainly works for large crimes like serial killings, serial rapes, arson and so on.
