We both hold Ph.D.s in criminal justice and have extensive backgrounds in the study of police and policing. We have worked with police agencies across the country in consulting, training, strategic planning, and research capacities. Our services are grounded in practical application of evidence-based research. We are based in Orlando, but offer in-person and remote services to agencies across Florida and beyond.
