Dr. Cathy Prowse is a former 25-year police officer with the Calgary Police Service and holds a PhD in anthropology, where her work continues to focus on culturally-influenced aspects of crime. Dr. Prowse is the recipient of local, national, and international recognition for her gang research which, over the course of her policing career and beyond, has been requested and used to inform expert testimony on four continents. As a result of her early work in this area, she was honoured in 1996 by the International Association of Law Enforcement Intelligence Analysts for her writing of a police investigators’ handbook titled, “Vietnamese Gangs: Fluidity and Mobility as Instruments of Organization”; the first individual Canadian to receive this honour. Due to its seminal nature, the distribution of her publication was limited to within the international law enforcement community to serve as an investigative tool into evolving gang structure; a gang structural prototype that is now being increasingly adopted by 21st century street gangs worldwide. Dr. Prowse’s expertise in the area of street gangs continues to be recognized; she was one of twelve Canadians invited recently to advise the Department of Justice on its youth-at-risk (of gangs/criminality) strategy. Dr. Prowse currently teaches in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Calgary and Mount Royal University on the topics of social control, crime, and justice.
