Michael D. White, Ph.D. is a Professor in the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University, and is Associate Director of ASU’s Center for Violence Prevention and Community Safety. He is also Director of the Doctoral Program in Criminology and Criminal Justice at ASU. Dr. White is Co-Director of Training and Technical Assistance for the US Department of Justice Body-Worn Camera Policy and Implementation Program. He received his Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from Temple University in 1999. Prior to entering academia, Dr. White worked as a deputy sheriff in Pennsylvania. Dr. White’s primary research interests involve the police, including use of force, technology, and misconduct. His recent work has been published in Justice Quarterly, Criminology and Public Policy, Criminal Justice and Behavior and Applied Cognitive Psychology. He is co-author of Stop and Frisk: The Use and Abuse of a Controversial Policing Tactic (2016); and Jammed Up: Bad Cops, Police Misconduct, and the New York City Police Department (2013; both published by New York University Press). Dr. White has commented extensively in the media on police issues, especially body-worn cameras, including in Scientific American, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, TIME Magazine, NPR, and MSNBC. He also testified about body-worn cameras before the President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. Dr. White recently completed a multi-site randomized controlled trial testing the impact of police officer body-worn cameras in Tempe, Arizona and Spokane, Washington (funded by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation). He is currently working with the Tempe (AZ) Police Department to design and evaluate a de-escalation training as part of their Strategies for Policing Innovation project (funded by the Bureau of Justice Assistance).
