SFU prof honoured for career of fighting crime
Fighting crime has put SFU adjunct professor and Vancouver Police Department officer Ryan Prox into numerous critical roles during his career—while also finding time to teach popular forensic and criminal intelligence analysis courses. In recognition of his work, which includes ongoing roles with the United Nations Office of Project Services, the International Criminal Court, and the European Union in developing countries, Prox has been invested as an Officer of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces.
The national honour is one of the highest bestowed by the Governor General. Prox, who is currently a visiting faculty member in SFU’s School of Criminology, also received a Police Exemplary Service Medal.
The Officer of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces recognize outstanding meritorious service in duties of responsibility over an extended period, typically at the regional or provincial level.
