Camie Condon received her BA in Criminal Justice from Michigan State University (USA) and her MSc and PhD from the University of Liverpool (UK) where she studied under the supervision of Professors David Canter, Jon Cole and Laurence Alison.
As a part of Camie’s PhD research, she examined police tactical decision making during armed confrontations. Camie’s research specifically explored the theoretical understanding of police use of force in conjunction with applied use of force training and executive brain function under demand. This work included designing and carrying out high fidelity training scenarios with Firearms Training System (FATS), FX Marking Cartridges – Simunition, and SetCan Stressvest.
Camie’s current research includes a cross cultural comparison of inducements of ‘excessive’ use of force as well as being a contributor to a SSHRC funded research grant exploring intelligence systems, technology and police officer efficiency, autonomy and accountability.
Camie has spent the last eight years as a Crime Analyst with a regional police service in Canada assisting investigators and uniform officers in gathering detailed information and devising strategic and tactical police response plans. Additionally, for the past 15 years Camie has been engaged in education and training at several higher education institutions including Liverpool Hope University, Conestoga College and Wilfrid Laurier University. Her teaching areas include: Psychology, Criminology, Sociology and Law and Security Foundations.
