Douglas A. Orr, Ph.D.


Although my home town is Philadelphia, I've lived in many places across the US. Over the past thirty years, I've served as a law enforcement officer for many years working on the street, in the Major Crimes Unit, and in the Special Victims Unit working exclusively on cybercrime, child exploitation, and sexual assault. I've also taken on many technical specialties to include polygraph and computer forensic analysis.


In the academic community, I am also a respected professor of criminal justice, invited speaker, and published author.


Recently, the US Department of State invited me to teach at the International Law Enforcement Academy in Roswell, New Mexico. There, I have instructed law enforcement leaders from all across the globe regarding democratic leadership styles. I am humbled that our government would trust me to represent the criminal justice community and lead leaders from across the globe.


But most importantly, I am a husband, father, and grandfather.
