Established a training and community outreach program with Federal Law Enforcement Agencies that delivers post certification and continuing education credits on the impact of crime on local law enforcement personnel, professional counselors, and victim advocates. Information of crime trends is made available to the public and criminal justice students at the seminar.
My professional experience was in the public sector with the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Geography was the foundation because it provided a platform to understand world cultures, geographical relationships, and geopolitics. Public Policy, Criminal Justice and Geography are interrelated and form a foundation for the study of criminal justice.
