Brad is the first police officer to ever work as a founder in an incubator/accelerator program for technology start-up companies. While at Ryerson’s accelerator, the DMZ, one of Brad’s roles was to foster a culture of innovation and learn lessons to be brought back to the Toronto Police Service. Brad continues to work in the Innovation office for the Toronto Police Service where he works closely with the Service’s external innovation network and start-up ecosystem to deliver the most valuable solutions to the Service and the people of Toronto that they serve.
On two separate occasions Brad was Toronto’s Police Officer of the Month and in 2014 he received the award for being Toronto’s Police Officer of the Year.
