Adjunct Faculty, Criminal Justice and Criminology
I am a lieutenant with the East Providence Police Department and am currently a shift supervisor in the patrol division. Prior to becoming shift supervisor, I was assigned to the Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Rhode Island Joint Cyber Task Force investigating child exploitation and computer-related crimes. I was a detective in the major crimes unit for 12 years prior to becoming a shift supervisor. I also started the computer forensic unit at the East Providence Police Department, where I perform computer and mobile device forensics associated with all types of criminal cases. I hold several industry certifications in my 20+ years in law enforcement, to include extensive training through the National Computer Forensics Institute run by the U.S. Secret Service. Rising through the ranks, I served in the patrol division as a patrolman and field training officer, later promoted to detective corporal, then to patrol sergeant and sergeant of the Bureau of Criminal Identification, before being promoted to the rank of lieutenant.
I am a member of the East Providence Police Department's special reaction team, where I serve as assistant commander and am a chemical/less lethal munitions instructor as well as a certified FBI firearms instructor and armorer. I have been an adjunct instructor at Salve Regina since 2018.
