Stories of an FBI Profiler and Hostage Negotiator
By Retired FBI Agent Steve McVey
We will welcome long-time FBI profiler and hostage negotiator Steve McVey as our speaker when we meet Saturday, February 22 at the Carmel Public Library. Steve will talk about techniques he applied when profiling serial rapists and dangerous killers. Steve was the only FBI profiler serving Indiana 1982-1988.
Steve McVey was just 17 when he went to work for the FBI in May of 1956 as a supply and mail clerk. After graduating from the University of Indianapolis in 1962 with a B.A. in history, he was accepted into the FBI’s Agents School. Eleven days before his 24th birthday, he became an FBI Special Agent.
After he mastered the Russian language, he was assigned to work Russian counterespionage in New York City. Five years later, he switched to the bank robbery squad and became an instructor. In 1972, he returned to Indiana and became part of the federal criminal and vice squad. He became a hostage negotiator and authority on abnormal psychology and sex crimes, which led him to become a psychological profiler of serial killers and rapists. He retired from the FBI in 1988. Later that year, he joined Purdue’s School of Technology and taught organizational leadership until he retired in 2001.
He co-authored “Managing Violence in the Workplace” in 1996 and “Kids Killing Kids: Managing Gang Violence in Schools” in 1999. More recently, he wrote “The Science and Religion of What We Call God.”
