He left the Sheriff's Office in 2015 to begin his teaching career as an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Lansing Community College. Specifically, he taught a high school CTE program at Clinton County RESA. Finally, Brad was hired by Lake Michigan College in 2019 to lead its Criminal Justice program. He has been consistently impressed and inspired by the students of southwest Michigan since that time. Education: Western Michigan University Thomas M.
