F.A.Q.


Crime podcasting is a sensationalized hobby that entertains millions of individuals each and everyday. The entertainment associated to this glorification is so infectious that it has modified the reality and knowledge base of what individuals believe is true or false. The majority of these podcasts are hosted by individuals that do not have any experience in the investigative field and solely enjoy reading true crime and then retelling the story to individuals that do not desire to read to educate themselves on various topics and interests but rather prefer to listen solely to the regurgitated material.

Crime podcasting is nothing more than storytelling time to individuals that have the time to listen and yet these stories have permeated the crime scene investigation realm beyond the reality of working on these cases firsthand. Here at Hutton Forensics, we investigate real crime scenes and will never turn investigations into an entertain option or industry. Our live webinars are for training purposes only and we do not find any sort of entertainment in working with fellow detectives or colleagues, victims, or perpetrators. Unfortunately, true crime podcasting only illustrates true impropriety and malfeasance in the field as any professional in this industry is aware of.
Hutton Forensics provides and distributes certificates of completion to all attendees upon finishing a course webinar live training opportunity. Certifications assist professionals in constructing and improving their Resumes, CV's, Continuing Education Credits, and Portfolio. Unfortunately, the realm of criminal justice is so inundated with applications and career-related interests that if you do not add certifications to your credentials, you are harming yourself and the ability to be set apart from the many individuals that are also applying to work and thrive in this industry.
A Criminal Psychologist is a specialist that is skilled, educated, and trained in criminal behavior. This specialization concentrates upon the criminal mind; interjecting patterns of criminal behavior within the spectrum of perpetration and victimization alike. Elements of suspectology include using a lens of predictability while incorporating typologies to assess criminality. When working with victims of crime, the Criminal Psychologist may incorporate the specialization of survivorology and traumatology to best assess the needs, experiences, and psychological detriment conveyed. Within the realm of specializing in criminal behavior, the Criminal Psychologist dissects and investigates the emergent themes and commonalities within crime scene investigations for the purpose of establishing typologies (types) of criminals, perpetration patterns, or victims.
The Criminal Psychologist is a specialist that concentrates upon criminal behavior and the criminal mind; the goal is to interject patterns of criminal behavior within the spectrum of perpetration and victimization alike. Whereas, the Forensic Psychologist specializes in forensic assessment of an individual; these assessments and evaluations may be mandated by the court to assess criminal history, risk of offense, level of competency, danger, insanity, and culpability alike. Many often intertwine the two specializations based upon inaccurate use of these titles within the entertainment industry.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Sociopathy is similar to psychopathy and many professionals utilize these terms interchangeably, believing that there isn’t a difference behaviorally between the two classifications. However, there are similarities as well as distinguishable characteristics between psychopathic and sociopathic behaviors and the basis of their deviancy is closely parallel in nature. It should be noted that sociopathy is a typology of psychopathy and this may be the reason underlying the ambiguity of what term is most applicable to certain behaviors or actions. Psychopaths have an inheritable ability to be antisocial whereas the sociopath has been shaped socially to be dissocial.
