Bio

Background

Rosemary J. Erickson, Ph.D., is a forensic sociologist and a nationally known expert on crime prevention and security. She is president of Athena Research Corporation. Dr. Erickson received her Ph.D. in Sociology and Justice from American University in Washington, D.C. As a sociologist, she has studied the problem of crime for over twenty-five years, beginning with a study funded by the National Institute of Justice, to determine what would reduce robbery and violence in convenience stores. That work led to the measures seen today in retail establishments worldwide, which include cash control, visibility, lighting, and employee training. She brings her skills in sociological profiling to her research, training, and expert witnessing.

Research and Teaching

Dr. Erickson conducts research on homicide, rape, assault, and robbery, and she interviews robbers about what they look for when they consider robbing a location. She designed the intervention measures for a five-year security research project with UCLA, to reduce robbery and violence in business settings. This included testing the measures in hotels, motels, gas stations, fast food locations, convenience stores, grocery stores, liquor stores, restaurants, and bars. Dr. Erickson taught in the Sociology Department at San Diego State University and at American University in Washington, D.C.

Consulting and Training

Based on her research, Dr. Erickson has developed programs and training for security and workplace violence in convenience stores, gas stations, banks, hospitals, fast food establishments, hotels, taxi cabs, and other locations. Her consulting includes corporations, non-profit groups, and government agencies at local, state, and federal levels. She also consults and trains regarding public nuisance abatement issues.

Expert Witnessing

Dr. Erickson serves as an expert witness in civil premises liability cases and testifies on the subject of security in convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores, fast food locations, guard companies, apartments, hotels, motels, condominiums, taxi cabs, parking lots, banks, strip malls, nursing homes, bars, clubs, casinos, and apartments. She has testified on workplace violence and security before city, state and federal legislators, including testimony before the U.S. House Committee on Crime against Small Business and before the U. S. Department of Labor. She serves as a liaison between business and government and has consulted with federal and state OSHA agencies and the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in planning model programs to protect workers. She has also testified before WorkSafe British Columbia in Victoria, BC, Canada.

Publicity and Publications

Dr. Erickson has received widespread media coverage, in print, broadcast, and on the internet. She has written numerous reports and articles on security and violence in the workplace. Her book Armed Robbers and Their Crimes is used by security managers nationwide in planning programs for security. Her research is also reported in Teenage Robbers, available for download at no charge at www.athenaresearch.com.
