Criminal Minds… The Profilers
“To catch a criminal, you have to think like one.”
An elite group of profilers analyze the nation’s most dangerous criminal minds trying to anticipate their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most prominent agent is David Rossi, a founding member of the BAU. The team is led by Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, a family man who has the ability to gain people’s trust and discover their secrets.
Also on the team are:
Special Agent Derek Morgan, who has a black belt in Judo, runs FBI self-defense classes and previously served in a bomb squad unit and as a Chicago police officer. He is an expert on obsessional crimes.
Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid is a genius who graduated from high school at age 12. He has an eidetic memory, meaning that he can remember an exceedingly large amount of information with extraordinary detail.
Special Agent Jennifer “JJ” Jareau is the team’s connection with the media and local police agencies. She’s not a profiler.
Special Agent Emily Prentiss is the daughter of an ambassador. She must prove that she deserves to be part of the team.
Audio/Visual Technician Penelope Garcia is a computer wizard. After her parents died she dropped out of Caltech and went “underground” but continued to teach herself computer coding. She had been on one of the FBI’s hackers lists and they recruited her from there.
Each member brings his or her own area of expertise and together they are a solid and unvanquished team.
