Kathleen M. McCabe
Assistant Professor II of Criminal Justice
I am a retired police officer from Michigan, who worked as a hostage negotiator and a field training officer. In police work, you are mostly dealing with people who are in some type of conflict and failing in areas of their lives; teaching has given me an opportunity to see people who are taking control of their lives and making personal improvements. I decided to teach at a community college because I like the commitment and determination that these students show. COCC also has more individualized interaction between students and professors. I teach criminal justice because I like looking into the faces of the future for criminal justice.
