I had been a police officer for twelve years
in British Columbia, Canada before I decided to put my career aside to pursue
my PhD studies concerning police training and reform, both at the local and
international level. I was the Senior Police Specialist for the Police
Assessment Resources Center (PARC) in Los Angeles, California where I assisted
in the audit of police departments and the development of a community-policing
manual for community members. Prior to that I served as the Policy Advisor on
Law Enforcement for the Global Justice Program of the Liu Institute for Global
Issues at the University of British Columbia and contributed to the "The
International Criminal Court and Victims and Witnesses: A Practitioners Guide".
Currently, besides working on my mapping project of the deaths related to the Drug War in Mexico, I work as a consultant to provide expert witness services to Mexican asylum and CAT cases in the United States.
