Research Interests:

My principal work is in the area of intersection of philosophy, law, ethics and the administration of justice with particular focus, at present, on the police function. I am near completion of an extensive work on the jurisprudence of police, the first of its kind to apply legal philosophy to the police function and to unify the diverse activities of police under an integrative conception of law's enforcement.
