There is a documented psychology to criminal investigators and investigations. It is important to analyze how our biases and assumptions influence our assessment of individuals and to analyze and understand psychological profiling in law enforcement. This provides a platform to determine cultural-based behavior patterns that may be specific to certain segments of the population. It is also important to understand the impact of these events and the psychological ramifications for victims and for investigators. • Analyze the behavior of the investigator(s), including the analysis of the crime scene. • Describe the psychological, behavioral, environmental, and cognitive factors that you believe influenced the investigation. (The goal is to understand the role these factors play in how an investigation is conducted and potentially on the outcome of the investigation.) • Discuss what role, if any, the psychological profile of the offender played in how the investigation was conducted and in any subsequent court proceedings. • Analyze how our biases and assumptions influence assessments of individuals. • Describe how cultural-based behavior patterns specific to certain segments of the population impact these biases and assumptions, particularly relative to psychological profiling in law enforcement. The Investigative Psychology paper • Must be at least three double-spaced pages in length (not including title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style • Must include a separate title page with the following: o Title of paper o Student’s name o Course name and number o Instructor’s name o Date submitted • Must use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the course texts. • Must document all sources in APA style

According to AU (2009) most companies today have a global expansion agenda, and many companies have become multinational or transnational. These companies face the challenge of creating a consistent ethical culture across the global network, while respecting diversity and integrating new values into many different office cultures. A good ethics program is very helpful in communicating the values and visions of a company. Such a program helps create a consistent corporate culture, something that is very important for global companies that have operations in diverse locations with differing legal systems, ethical values, and priorities. An ethics program clearly lays out expectations from employees and helps them make the best decisions. To be effective, an ethics code must have well-conceived and broadly implemented through training and enforcement components. The field of human rights is another important area where companies are placing an increasing amount of attention. A company can avoid human rights violations by creating a code of conduct to be universally applied. A code of conduct sets universal guidelines on various issues like labor, working hours, discrimination, freedom of association, health and safety, and sometimes, environmental practice policies. Another potential problem is corruption and bribery. The U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act prevents companies from paying bribes to foreign governments and officials, as well as political candidates. Also, the organization for economic cooperation and development treaty has members from many countries who have pledged to refrain from unethical behavior.

An entrepreneur wants to determine whether it would be profitable to establish a gardening service in a local suburb. The entrepreneur believes that there are four possible levels of demand for this gardening service: Very low demand—1% of the households would use the service. Low demand—5% of the households would use the service. Moderate demand—10% of the households would use the service. High demand—25% of the households would use the service. Based on past experiences in other suburbs, the entrepreneur assigns the following probabilities to the various demand levels: P(High demand) = 0.10 P(Moderate demand) = 0.20 P(Low demand) = 0.50 P(Very low demand) = 0.20 The entrepreneur has calculated the following profits or

An entrepreneur wants to determine whether it would be profitable to establish a gardening service in a local suburb. The

entrepreneur believes that there are four possible levels of demand for this gardening service: Very low demand—1% of the

households would use the service. Low demand—5% of the households would use the service. Moderate demand—10% of the

households would use the service. High demand—25% of the households would use the service. Based on past experiences in other

suburbs, the entrepreneur assigns the following probabilities to the various demand levels: P(High demand) = 0.10 P(Moderate

demand) = 0.20 P(Low demand) = 0.50 P(Very low demand) = 0.20 

The entrepreneur has calculated the following profits or

losses ($) of this garden service for each demand level (over a period of one year): 
ACTION 
DEMAND 
Provide Garden

Service Do Not Provide Garden Service 
Very low -50,000 0 Low 60,000 0 Moderate 130,000 0 High 300,000 0 
a. Construct a

decision tree. 
b. Construct an opportunity loss table. 
c. Compute the expected monetary value (EMV) for offer- ing this

garden service. 
d. Compute the expected opportunity loss (EOL) for offer- ing this garden service. 
e. Explain the meaning

of the expected value of perfect information (EVPI) in this problem. 
f. Compute the return-to-risk ratio (RTRR) for

offering this garden service. 
g. Based on the results of (c), (d), and (f ), should the entre- preneur offer this garden

service? Why? Before making a final decision, the entrepreneur conducts a survey to determine demand for the gardening

service. A random sample of 20 households is selected, and 3 indicate that they would use this gardening service. 
h. Revise

the prior probabilities in light of this sample infor- mation. (Hint: Use the binomial distribution to determine the

probability of the outcome that occurred, given a par- ticular level of demand.) 
i. Use the revised probabilities in (h) to

repeat (c) through (g).
