I am a Retired Chicago Police Department Sergeant.  The last 25 years of my career was spent in Investigative Services, both as a Detective and Supervisor.  I have been fortunate enough to have had extensive experience in the Detective Division/Bureau, Forensic Services, and Narcotics Section.  I have dealt with Homicides, Death Investigation, Robberies, Crime Scene Protection & Processing, and Undercover Investigations, and most other types of Criminal Investigations.


  • BS from University of Illinois, Chicago Circle
  • MS in Criminal & Social Justice from Lewis University

Research and Interests:

I thoroughly appreciate the opportunity to instruct, interact, and exchange ideas and information with the students I have “taught”.  It is my honest belief that I get more from each class than my students due to their collective experience, insight, perceptions, and participation in the learning process.
