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.  

Webinar: Implementing Evidence Based Practices and Services with Fidelity

Although crime control policy and program development processes are increasingly being informed by scientific evidence, identifying and adopting what works is only part of what’s needed to realize positive outcomes. Evidence-based programs and practices (EBPs) still have to be implemented with fidelity and integrity in order to be successful. Unfortunately, implementation is not an easy task. Implementation science, however, can help practitioners tackle implementation challenges so the promise of EBPs can be more fully realized.
