Patrick Brady received his Ph.D. in Criminal Justice and Criminology from Sam Houston State University in 2017. He is currently an assistant professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. Having experience supervising delinquent youth, implementing violence prevention programming in educational settings, and training criminal justice professionals on preventing intimate partner homicide, Patrick strives to help criminal justice agencies to use research to answer pressing questions. His research focuses on how officers and prosecutors can corroborate evidence beyond physical injuries in domestic violence complaints, as how agencies can address vicarious trauma and burnout in policing.
