Andrew’s recent publication in the Journal of Interpersonal Violence includes his analysis of nearly 10,000 first responder reports from the scene of domestically violent incidents. This study is the largest study of its kind ever published to date in academic literature.

Andrew uses this knowledge to work closely with various victim serving agencies to encourage a data driven, multi-disciplinary response to these incidents, particularly when children are involved.

Andrew is currently working to develop a standardized response for first responders to the scene of a domestically violent incident involving children. He is also working with various city and state agencies to develop “predictive mapping” of violent events to identify where in the city they are most likely to occur next. This program will help to better ensure the proper allocation of available city/state victim and responder resources.

We are proud to have Andrew as part of the Prevention Culture team. Andrew was a finalist for the 2016 Indianapolis Business Journal’s “Heroes in Healthcare” for Community Achievement in Health Care, and he serves on several multi-disciplinary fatality review and violence prevention committees/boards.
