 Colin Johnson
World-Renowned Geographical Profiler
& National Crime Agency

The ‘M25 Serial Rapist’

Meet Colin....

Much of Colin’s professional career has been within policing, both as an investigator and for
over 20 years as one of the world’s leading internationally accredited and operational
Geographic Profilers.


He holds fellowship in his discipline and supported many top-tier and
wide ranging investigations. These have included cases involving serial killers such as
Robert Black, Levi Bellfield, Richard Wright, David Copeland and the ‘Railway Murderers’
Duffy and Mulcahy, as well as serial sex offenders such as the ‘M25’, ‘London Night
Stalker’ and ‘DJ’ rapists.

Colin’s expertise has enabled him to work in organisations including the National Crime
Faculty and most recently the National Crime Agency, in addition to having been the
National Police Interview Advisor. Beyond his practitioner role, Colin is a university senior
lecturer in forensic and legal psychology, firmly believing there is considerable value in the
link between academia, research and practice.
