Author Biography

A pioneer in law enforcement, Denise K.

Wachusett Community College, where she now serves as a member on the Board of Trustees.

Dr. Gosselin graduated in the 61st Recruit Training Troop of the Massachusetts State Police in January 1980. During the years that followed she served as a uniformed officer performing route patrol activities, as an instructor at the Massachusetts State Police Academy, and as a detective in major crime investigations. Recognized as a local expert in child abuse investigation, she has spoken on cable television and radio. She appeared on the America’s Most Wanted television show in connection with a fugitive in a case she was investigating. She has made many presentations at professional meetings with the Department of Social Services, Department of Mental Health, and Office of the District Attorney. She has testified in numerous major crime cases in both criminal and civil hearings.

Dr. Gosselin served as a faculty member and Department Chair in the Criminal Justice and Sociology Department at Western New England University until her retirement as Professor Emerita in 2017. Her other publications include Heavy Hands: An Introduction to the Crimes of Family Violence, currently in its sixth edition, and Crimes and Mental Disorders: The Criminal Justice Response. Dr. Gosselin has contributed to the Encyclopedia of Police Science, the Encyclopedia of Juvenile Justice, and the Encyclopedia of Domestic Violence, as well as chapters to Women, Law, & Social Control and Policing & Victims.

Dr. Gosselin is an experienced Criminal Justice Program Reviewer. Her major presentations and invited lectures have been at the 12th United Nations Congress on Crime and Criminal Justice in Salvador, Brazil; the Massachusetts State Police Academy, at West Point Military Academy, Campbell University, NC; and at Gwynedd-Mercy College, PA.
