Who IS Chelsea Hoffman?
Chelsea Hoffman is a self proclaimed "crime analyst and profiler".
A crime analysts job is to "study previous crimes and criminals, looking for patterns". The second part of the job involves using "data developed during the studies to predict future crimes". A third part of the job is "to communicate the findings of the studies in a way that makes the information useful".
"Criminal profiling is the act of developing a psychological profile of an offender based on the state of the crime scene. Profiling is often done by a forensic psychologist -- someone who has studied the criminal mind".
That being said, Chelsea Hoffman is NEITHER a crime analyst, or a criminal profiler.
Why is Chelsea Hoffman not a crime analyst?
According to The International Association of Crime Analysts, an applicant for certification "must have 3 full-time years of analytical experience. This may include internships and volunteer work, and time can be combined and/or prorated".
Chelsea Hoffman is currently attending Ashworth University and is working on an online Bachelor's degree in Criminal Justice.
Why does this matter? Because in order to be a crime analyst, you must, according to The International Association of Crime Analysts, have 1) education or 2) volunteer work/internships. According to Chelsea's own website, where she lays out her "Bragging Rights", she has assisted in the "Satara Stratton (Silver) disappearance", and the "Christine Lindsey Walters disappearance".
Looks to me that she lacks both the education AND experience needed in order to call herself a Crime Analyst.
Why is Chelsea Hoffman not a criminal profiler?
Well for starters, we know that Chelsea lacks the education required to call herself a criminal profiler. We can conclude, since she has not finished her degree, that she has not studied the "criminal mind".
So what DOES Chelsea do?
Chelsea loves to put her own "spin" on things. She likes to stick her own thoughts and opinions into the articles that she creates. I'm not going to say that she writes, because if she did, she would have a shred of decency in what came out of her brain. For most of you who have read anything by Chelsea, you know exactly what I'm talking about.
So back to my question as to what Chelsea REALLY does. She states that she is not a journalist or a reporter, and I agree with that. Journalists and reporters have a certain set of standards to uphold.
Chelsea seems to have no standards at all. She defames the families of our deceased love ones and spreads lies and rumors. She does not look for patterns, predict future crimes, or make any of her information useful; all required to call oneself a crime analyst.
I'm not sure WHAT to classify Chelsea as, other than an extremely mean-spirited individual, who cares about nothing but herself. She certainly could care less about the families that she writes about, because if she did, she would hold herself to a certain standard, refrain from spreading lies, and not defame the families involved in her "works".
I invite every one of you to write me at the email provided on my profile, if you have been personally affected by the "works" of Chelsea Hoffman. I will be happy to publish the information you provide (anonymously if preferred) in which to gather a case together, and bring Chelsea Hoffman down together!
