CRIMINAL MINDS revolves around an elite team of FBI profilers who analyze the country's most twisted criminal minds, anticipating their next moves before they strike again. The Behavioral Analysis Unit’s most experienced agent is David Rossi, a founding member of the BAU, who is essential in helping the team solve new cases. The BAU team is lead by Special Agent Aaron Hotchner, a strong profiler who is able to gain people's trust and unlock their secrets. Other members include Special Agent Derek Morgan, an expert on obsessional crimes; Special Agent Dr. Spencer Reid, a classically misunderstood genius whose social IQ is as low as his intellectual IQ is high; Jennifer “J.J.” Jareau, the team’s former unit liaison-turned-profiler who handles motherhood and marriage with the same skill as she solves cases; and Penelope Garcia, the team’s indispensible computer wizard who helps research the cases with her unique charm. Each member of the team brings their area of expertise to the table as the BAU continues its dedication to pinpointing predators' motivations and identifying their emotional triggers in the attempt to stop them.
