He was one of the first criminal profilers and has written books on criminal psychology. John Douglas has three children with his partner and wife Pamela Douglas. While traveling around the country providing instruction to police, Douglas began interviewing serial killers and other violent sex offenders at various prisons. Douglas later received two Thomas Jefferson Awards for academic excellence from the University of Virginia for his work on the study. Douglas examined crime scenes and created profiles of the perpetrators, describing their habits and attempting to predict their next moves. In cases where his work helped to capture the criminals, he built strategies for interrogating and prosecuting them as well. At the time of criminal profiling's conception, Douglas claimed to have been doubted and criticized by his own colleagues until both police and the FBI realized that he had developed an extremely useful tool for the capture of criminals.
