Patrick Brady

Patrick Brady received a PhD in Criminal Justice from Sam Houston State University in 2017.  In 2010, he graduated from Weber State University in Ogden, Utah with a Bachelor of Art’s degree in Forensic Science, and a minor in Sociology.  He continued on an academic adventure to Boise State University, where he received a Master of Art’s degree in Criminal Justice in 2012.  Patrick has spent the majority of his professional career working with youth in state-run treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools. After obtaining his Master’s degree, he worked with a statewide domestic and sexual violence coalition to implement adolescent relationship abuse and sexual violence prevention programming in middle and high schools throughout Idaho. Patrick’s primary research interests focus on reducing burnout among police officers and improving university and justice system response to intimate partner stalking.

Bystander Intervention Education

I am a certified trainer with Green Dot, a bystander education program that builds the capacity of community members to reduce power-based personal violence.


I have been certified through the National Crime Victimization Center's Stalking Resource Center to train law enforcement, advocates, and first responders on the dynamics and intersection of stalking, intimate partner violence, and sexual assault.
