Waters

“As a career law enforcement officer who strongly believes in lifelong learning, I thoroughly enjoy teaching for Marquette University's College of Professional Studies. I find that one continues to learn when they teach, and I am privileged to have this opportunity. Additionally, the greater understanding of law enforcement by practicing professionals, aspiring professionals , and the citizenry alike will do nothing but improve law enforcement's ability to perform their duties and carry out their responsibilities.”
