Prior to becoming an academic I was a Police Officer with the Peel Regional Police Service, and a Probation and Parole Officer and Human Rights Officer with the Government of Ontario. Since becoming an academic my research has focused on policing, the abolition of capital punishment and techniques for mitigating the effects of prejudice. Also, I was one of the founders of the University of Guelph-Humber and the first Program Head of the Justice Studies Program there. In this capacity I created a degree completion program for law enforcement practitioners.
