I’m a retired police captain from CT. I have 24 years of experience in Law enforcement, including: Internal Affairs and Patrol Division. During my career, I taught Implicit Bias, Human Behavior (psychology), Defensive Tactics (use of force), Handcuffing, and Civil Complaints to police recruits and veteran officers. In retirement, I continue to teach the History of Policing and Procedural Justice. As an adjunct professor at a local college, I teach numerous CJ and Management courses.

I have a PhD in Leadership with a concentration in Criminal Justice and a master’s degree in forensic psychology. I am available for testimony on the use of force, defensive tactics, leadership, supervision, diversity and inclusion, race, ethnicity and crimes, police procedures, implicit bias, supervision/management, and other police-related topics.
