Dr. Brenda Bond-Fortier is a longtime friend and colleague, having met her in our work at a Lowell DARE camp, some 30 years ago, while I was with the Drug Enforcement Administration. Brenda worked for the Lowell Police Department, UMass Lowell, and returned to school earning a doctorate from Brandeis University.
Brenda is a professor of public administration at Suffolk University in Boston. She is an active researcher and writer, in the areas of Relational Coordination, and organizational change.
She is a consultant, performing reviews of police agencies, at the municipal and university levels for a national police management consulting firm.
We talked about leadership, problem-solving, collaboration and coordination with social service agencies, and organizational change in policing.
