This paper examines how sexuality becomes a field of action of the Forensic Police Academy - during the first three decades of the last century - and presents the implications of such an occurrence. The author’s hypothesis is that this field of action, based on anthropological criminology – an uncommon experience in the European landscape - developed a particular approach towards sexuality combining ingeniously scientific ambitions and concerns of public order. The author explains how beliefs about the importance of sexual abnormalities in the forensic field set off reporting systems and surveillance of homosexuals and transvestites. The activities carried out by the Anthropological Biographical Service stimulated curiosity, research and police investigations over the behaviour and bodies of "sexually abnormal subjects".
Keywords: Forensic services, sexual abnormalities, reporting, museum of criminology.
