If avatars are perceived as realistic, they may elicit emotional reactions among participants. Such emotional reactions may either facilitate (by increasing attention and interest as well as being more akin to the actual task) or impede (by disrupting cognitive processes) transfer of the learning to real interviews with actual children.
Article
Simulated avatar interview training has been proven to be effective in improving child sexual abuse interview quality. However, the topic of perceived realism of the avatars and whether they cause emotional reactions has not been previously investigated. Such reactions could affect both learning from the interview simulations as well as how actual...

The present study aimed to test the effectiveness of giving feedback on simulated avatar interview training (Avatar Training) across different experiments and participant groups and to explore the effect of professional training and parenting experience by conducting a mega-analysis of previous studies. A total of 2,208 interviews containing 39,950...

Research has shown that confirmation bias plays a role in legal and forensic decision‐making processes and, more specifically, child interviews. However, previous studies often examine confirmation bias in child interviews using non‐abuse‐related events. We enrich the literature by examining interviewers’ behaviours in simulated child sexual abuse...

Purpose Research has shown that confirmation bias plays a role in legal and forensic decision-making processes. However, to our knowledge, no study has examined how it manifests itself when interviewing an allegedly abused child. Method In the present study, we used data from a series of experiments in which participants interviewed child avatars...
Article
Background Previous research has shown the effectiveness of simulation training using avatars paired with feedback in improving child sexual abuse interview quality. However, it has room for improvement. Objective The present study aimed to determine if the combination of two interventions, feedback and modeling, would further improve interview qu...
Article
Existing geographic profiling software that performs the widely tested probability dis- tance strategies has issues when implemented in criminal investigation in Japan. Therefore, we developed the Spatial Analysis Methods of Offender’s Nodes (SAMON) software based on a free software environment, R. Given the issues involving existing software, SAMO...
Article
Purpose The purpose of this paper was to compare the accuracy of linking crimes using geographical proximity between three distance measures: Euclidean (distance measured by the length of a straight line between two locations), Manhattan (distance obtained by summing north-south distance and east-west distance) and the shortest route distances. De...
Article
Full-text available
Although previous research has confirmed the effectiveness of simulated child sexual abuse interviews with feedback, its validation is limited to Western contexts and face-to-face settings. The present study aims to extend this research to non-Western and online/remote training conditions. Thirty-two Japanese undergraduate students were randomly as...
Article
Full-text available
The accuracy of geographic profiling for predicting a serial offender's home/base location was compared by using three different distance measures—the Euclidean distance, the Manhattan distance, and the Shortest route distance—using the data of 1,856 crimes committed by 124 residential burglars in Northern Tohoku area of Japan from 2004 to 2015. Lo...
Article
This study examines the effects of neighbourhood attractiveness on the residential burglar's crime location choice process using a discrete choice model. We show that past crime data are an important index of a neighbourhood's attractiveness and can be combined with other attractiveness indices adapted from previous studies. We used data from 369 s...
Article
Full-text available
Studies of geographic profiling (GP) have generally investigated the efficacy of two categories of GP strategies for predicting an offender’s base. These strategies can be classified as follows: (a) spatial distribution strategies, assessed by center of the circle hypothesis, mean center, median center, and the center of minimum distance, and (b) p...
Article
Full-text available
Human behavior is characterized by inherent regularity, and previous studies have confirmed that criminal behavior is no exception. In particular, three distinguishable aspects of geographic offending behavior may be characterized by consistency: destination, distance, and direction. In this study, which focused on the aspect of direction, we carri...
Article
Full-text available
A number of studies have investigated behavioral case linkage between crimes of a specified type, such as linking one residential burglary with another residential burglary. However, only a few studies have investigated the effectiveness of case linkage across crime types, which have been limited to the UK. This study examined whether linking acros...
Article
The goals of this study were as follows: (1) to increase the basic knowledge of offender demographics and geographical characteristics in residential burglaries by taking into account the means of transportation used in the offence; and (2) to explore the possibility that the information about the means of transportation improves the investigation...

Project
The goals of this project are (1) to investigate the relationship between expertise and accuracy, (2) to compare the accuracy of heuristics and statistical models, and (3) to test whether or not the use of empirical findings and results of statistical analyses improve the accuracy of heuristics in crime linkage and offender/geographic profiling.
Project
The goals of this project are (1) to discover the features of expertise in question formulation and (2) to uncover factors that affect the efficacy of questions.
Project
CCA is defined as a searching database to detect offenses that show similarities in criminal behaviors (Davies and Woodhams, 2019) in contrast to case linkage analysis (CLA; Rainbow, 2014) that provides an analyst's opinion regarding a potential crime series from a list of offenses presented. This project aims to provide basic knowledge that contributes to estimating the whole picture of the distribution of serial crimes in the region and results in the development of an automated daily report system of serial crimes.
