Law Enforcement Consulting

Due to heavy caseloads professional law enforcement agencies and investigative professionals are presented with arduous challenges oftentimes laden with sensitive time constraints, making it even more challenging to create and utilize diverse research applications for atypical homicides, particularly crimes of a violent and explicit nature. Although cold cases continue to evolve into an array of complexities, law enforcement and forensic professionals fully recognize the importance of providing closure for the victims and their families and in my experience it is mostly in this capacity they devote their time and expertise.

Dr. Simon provides expert consultative services in the area of strategic interviewing, identifying high risk pathologies and problem solving specifically related to cold case homicide and sex crimes investigations. Due to the sensitive and confidential nature of these cases, Dr. Simon is unable to provide any further details. References are available to serious inquiries.
