Profficer: The Badge & The Briefcase

Fresh Ink: Professor + Officer = Profficer

Every month or two, I get the chance to write a story for my faculty’s student publication, the mitZine. It’s staffed with talented writers, editors, and illustrators, and it’s a privilege to see my work with theirs on the pages of one of Western’s alternative voices.

For this month’s issue, I wanted to write about a professor that taught a course that’s in my top 5 so far, “Police & the Media“. His name is Michael Arntfield, and he is both a professor of criminology and media studies and a full-time Detective-Constable with the London Police. His experience and insight, because of those two careers, is rare, and fascinating.

But, rather than reiterate my whole article, here it is so you can read it yourself. Or, download the whole mitZine issue from Scribd (my article is on page 10).

Professor Arntfield, as I know him, is building a website that will link interested citizens with his work. Check out the work in progress at
