I was involved in a number of projects including technical assistance, teaching, and steering committees. Some include the National Institute of Justice, the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), the SEARCH group, the National Law Enforcement and Corrections Technology Center (NLECTC), the FBI National Academy and the Southwest Law Enforcement Institute. He has also had the opportunity to teach online classes throughout the last 10 years using various software platforms. In addition, I have consulted for the Government of Argentina on developing a crime analysis program for six of the largest provinces. In addition, I conducted training for the University of Bucharest and the University of the West in Romania and for the Trinidad and Tobago Police Department. I have authored or co-authored a number of articles and an anthology “Crime and Justice in the Lone Star State.” Furthermore, I have authored and co-authored Better Policing with Microsoft Office, Better Policing with Microsoft Office 2007, Using Microsoft Office to Improve Law Enforcement Operations and Using Geographic Information Systems in Law Enforcement.
