The “Ferguson Effect,” along with contemporary issues in law enforcement in a post-Ferguson era, is a new Honors Program Seminar at Whatcom Community College, led by Chief Deputy Doug Chadwick of the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office.
Chadwick has 24 years of experience working in law enforcement. In 2014 he graduated from the FBI National Academy in Quantico, Virginia along with 220 men and women from 47 states and 23 international countries.
“The honors seminar proposal was well received and supported by other departments as a current and relevant subject that should be offered,” Chadwick said.
