Bio

After returning from the military in September 1968 I embarked on my 20 years as a police officer in Providence, RI. I specialized in violent crimes, investigating homicides and robberies.

During this time, I began college earning a BS in Criminal Justice, then transferring obtaining a BA in Psychology, moving on to an MS in Criminal Justice and again transferring to work on a doctorate in Sociology. During this time the opportunity arose to obtain a full-time position here at JWU’s College of Arts & Sciences.

During my 26 years at the university I have been able to utilize my investigative skills and academic background to help develop and nurture our successful criminal justice program. This is evidenced by our growth, crime lab and crime scene room — but, most importantly, by our graduates, who have found careers in criminal justice throughout the United States and abroad.
