Forensic science and psychology are two interdisciplinary fields of study that often work together to effectively investigate crimes (Goc&Gruca 2020). Criminal psychology studies the behavior of criminals, their motivations and psychological profiles. Criminal psychologists help to determine who could be suspected of committing a crime, based on behavior and other characteristics that are related to the crime (Widacki 2018). These psychologists can conduct psychological examinations of suspects, victims or witnesses to determine their role in the incident and increase the chances of a successful investigation.Forensic work includes laboratory tests, the use of modern technologies and tools, as well as data analysis. Forensic science plays an important role in the prevention of crime and in the justice process (Szydłowski 2016), helping to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of crimes and to ensure the safety of society. Collaboration between forensics and psychology can help identify suspects based on behavior and characteristics and use scientific evidence to conduct successful investigations. In the case of crimes involving people with mental disorders, criminal psychology can help to understand their behavior and assess the risk of recidivism (Czudek&Szydłowski 2022).In this way, cooperation between forensic science and psychology can be very effective in carrying out investigations and investigations, as well as in preventing crime and improving the security of society.
