Why Should You Use Our Practice?
We believe in two basic principles. First, our primary goal is to perform our job with integrity and do the job the right way. This is not always the most convenient way, the fastest way, or even the cheapest way at times, but you can never go wrong when you do things the right way.
Second, we believe that the field of Police and Public Safety Psychology requires specialized knowledge above and beyond that which is taught in a general graduate school curriculum. Very few professionals know relevant research literature, follow national best practice guidelines, and have a working knowledge of relevant legal cases in addition to Federal and State regulations related to Police and Public Safety Psychology. Dr. Tyre and Dr. Childs are subject matter experts in this highly specialized area of practice. We recommend that public safety agencies look into the Guidelines for Consulting Police Psychologists created by the International Association of Chiefs of Police before agreeing to contract with a professional to provide psychological services and/or consultation for your agency.
Do We Work With Other Types of Agencies?
Yes, in addition to their work with public safety agencies, Dr. Tyre and Dr. Childs also provide evaluations for employers that place individuals into positions where employees handle sensitive and/or confidential information (personal health information, financial information, SSN's, etc.), or have assignments involving weapons or complex machinery and systems.
These types of agencies can include financial institutions, healthcare settings, call centers, manufacturing plants, research facilities, etc. Evaluations have been conducted for jobs ranging from various director positions (nursing, residential care facilities, etc.) to sales managers for financial institutions and municipal employees such as building officials.
