In addition to conducting forensic evaluations for the legal system, state and local agencies, and testifying as an expert witness, Dr. Dudek further provides consultation services to law enforcement agencies and businesses, including support of criminal investigations and litigation, violence risk and threat assessment, training, risk management and related policy development, and workplace violence concerns. He is an affiliated consultant with the McCloskey Resource Group, a Portland, ME-based risk management company. Dr. Dudek has a particular expertise in the assessment of sexual and nonsexual violence and is a member of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services' Multidisciplinary Team, tasked with conducting assessments pursuant to the State's civil commitment statute for dangerous sexual offenders. He has consulted on several high profile criminal investigations portrayed in the national media.
