Listed below are examples of the consultancy I provide to Law Enforcement Organisations, businesses, and indivduals around the world. If you would like to know more or discuss your case, please contact me for a private consultation: david.keatley[at]

  • Current and Cold cases
    I work alongside many police and law enforcement agencies to help investigate and lend my analyses and research to current and unsolved, cold-cases. I am a member of several leading cold case groups, and am Co-Director of my own Cold Case Review group. I provide victimology and suspect analysis. I also provide timeline reconstruction using a range of methods. I specialise in homicide cases; however, I have also worked on financial fraud cases, assaults (including child abuse and intimate partner violence), and rape cases.

  • Interrogation Analysis
    ​​I provide in-depth analyses of interview and interrogations using a combination of statement analytical methods and nonverbal communication analyses to provide Law Enforcement with feedback and validity assessments. I provide this post hoc (of old audio and video tapes) and in vivo during interrogation of witnesses and suspects. This can be done on criminal cases as well as industry-related interviews.

  • Threat Assessment
    Using a combination of all of the methods I use, I provide bespoke threat analysis and management plans for a range of scenarios, including terrorists, stalkers, Intimate Partner Violence, and death threats.

  • Behaviour Tracking
    I am currently leading an international team of experts in combining temporal and geographic methods, I have developed Behaviour Tracking methods to map and analyse the movements of criminals in space and time.

  • Crime Linkage
    I have developed metrics for crime linkage in terms of building a case against a suspect, through linking other similar crimes. I also have access to various databases of serial killers, intimate partner violence, terrorists, familicides, and a range of other crimes, which I use to build a profile for suspect prioritisation.


  • Media /Guest Speaking Events
    While the majority of my consultancy is spent with Law Enforcement Agencies, working on their cases, I have appeared on various public media and given multiple Cold Case/Criminal Investigation spoken events (seminars, lectures, open nights). As a rule, I never discuss the details of cases I work on, instead I provide information about solved cases. I am available for consultancy on television shows, podcasts, documentaries and novels.
