Law Enforcement & Criminal Justice

I worked in Law Enforcement for over 32-years retiring from the Delaware State Police in September 2017 at the rank of Captain, serving the last four years as the Director of Human Resources.  My law enforcement experience includes increasingly responsible roles and achievement in the areas of: Policy/Procedure Development; Human Resource Management; Compliance Monitoring; Internal and External Investigations; & Training/Development.

I served as the Accreditation Manager for the Delaware State Police responsible for two meritorious re-accreditation awards with the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) and supervised a third meritorious re-accreditation as a commander.  I have been a part-time assessor for the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA) since September 2014 where I travel the country evaluating the policies and procedures of law enforcement agencies to be sure they meet the best practice standards set forth by CALEA.

I am a graduate of the FBI National Academy Law Enforcement Executive Leadership Development Program which is accredited by the University of Virginia.  I earned a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Wilmington University.  I have trained, supervised, and mentored police officers from basic training through first and second level supervision.

I have worked as a law enforcement consultant since 2015 initially part-time while still employed as a Trooper, and now full time as the president of Campanella Consulting Group, Inc.  (
