The timeline of a crime
You call 999, you’re put through to someone, the police arrive. If you’ve ever had to report a crime, those may be the only stages you’re aware of.

John Oliver wants to get tough on crime, or as he calls it “that thing that was almost solved by a flasher dog in the 1980s.” On Last Week Tonight, he turns his attention to the use of forensic evidence in trials. Forensics like bite marks, fingerprints, hair analysis, and DNA are a staple of TV crime shows — and Oliver has the mash-up of CSI and Law & Order to prove it — but the truth is that aside from DNA evidence, which is considered “the gold standard,” forensics aren’t nearly as reliable as TV shows would have you believe.

HCR-20 shows poor field validity in clinical forensic psychiatry settings
Assessment and prediction of violence risk is central to forensic psychiatry practice. From the 1970s, increasing awareness of the limitations of clinical judgement alone meant services began to employ actuarial risk assessment tools, which were shown to significantly improve predictive accuracy.1 However, these tools soon came under criticism for their own limitations, including focus on relatively static factors that are immutable and lack of applicability to specific real-world scenarios.1 This led to the development of structured professional judgement (SPJ) tools, which have largely replaced purely actuarial tools as ...
