For Police and Law Enforcement

Law-enforcement professionals confront many challenges involving civil rights. Police managers must ensure their department or agency prevents or responds effectively to allegations of police misconduct, racial profiling, and workplace discrimination and harassment. They also must ensure credible internal affairs investigations for civil rights complaints. Law-enforcement professionals also face an array of community relations challenges.  

Juvenile and school resource officers know from experience that bullying and harassment in schools often escalate to threats, physical intimidation, and violence—and at times into major school conflicts. The increasing problem of hate-motivated harassment and violence in our schools, communities, and in cyberspace often require law-enforcement agencies to investigate and respond.

As a civil rights and safe schools consultant, I offer law enforcement a broad range of training and counseling, and investigative, policy development and technical assistance on civil rights, workplace discrimination, hate crimes, police misconduct, and school safety, as I did for many years as Assistant Attorney General and Civil Rights Division Chief in the Massachusetts Office of Attorney General.

I look forward to working together with law enforcement on civil rights and discrimination matters.
