CRIMINAL MINDS is an American police procedural drama that differs from many procedural dramas by focusing on the victims and the criminal rather than the crime itself.
revolves around an elite team of profilers from the FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) at Quantico, Virginia. Profilers analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds in an effort to anticipate their next moves before they strike again. Each team member brings his or her own area of expertise to the table as they pinpoint predators' motivations and identify their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.
CRIMINAL MINDS, produced by The Mark Gordon Company in association with CBS Television Studios and ABC Studios, premiered September 22, 2005 on CBS.
