Community corrections

Further The Work

When we work with a jurisdiction to design a complex initiative, our client often retains us to produce an associated grant proposal to generate the project’s inaugural funding. We have achieved an impressive track record in impact fund-development; our compelling, well-researched, and successful proposals have raised tens of millions of dollars for our clients from federal, state, local, and private sources.

I believe I would be a strong asset as a BJA NTTAC Provider for training and technical assistance to law enforcement agencies in crime analysis. I have many years of experience working both as part of teams of consultants in conducting systems assessments, formulating recommendations, and providing technical assistance to criminal justice agencies; importantly, I also excel in the field of crime analysis.  Notably, I am one of a small number of individuals who have received the distinction of Certified Law Enforcement Analyst from the International Association of Crime Analysts.
