Personal profile

Dr. Doug Abrahamson bridges the academic scholar - police practitioner divide by blending academic/scholarly rigor with 35 years of professional policing knowledge, training, and experience.

Doug holds a Doctorate of Public Policy from Charles Sturt University (CSU), a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Royal Roads University (RRU), was a Senior Research Fellow with the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) in Washington D.C. (2006-2007) and was elected to and served on the RRU Board of Governors in 2001.

Dr. Abrahamson retired from policing in 2014 and continues to champion the need to improve public safety and security practices and knowledge transfer at the local, national (Canada) and international levels (United States, Australia, and the United Arab Emirates) through a variety of venues and mechanisms. Examples include but are not limited to: public safety and security consulting; curriculum development; adult education; Board and committee memberships; book, journal and white paper authorship; conference presentations; keynote speeches; evidence- based research; and independent academic journal manuscript peer-reviews.

Currently, Dr. Abrahamson is designing, developing, and teaching professional “documentation” and “reporting” courses (e.g., notetaking, interview techniques, basic and forensic photography, evidence handling, report writing, and court testimony) courses to organizations that do not have these skills and need to ensure that they meet judicial and semi-judicial quality standards.
