Oscar Odom III

Oscar Odom III, Chair of ASA College Division of Criminal Justice, was recently honored to be a keynote speaker at the 2013 TINYg Counter Terrorism Conference. The event held on Wednesday, October 9, 2013 in London, England also featured other influential members of the global criminal justice and counter-terrorist community, including Sir David Veness, formally of the United Nations Department of Safety & Security and Detective Superintendent Dermont Robinson of the Counter Terrorism Division of the London Police. The conference focused on discussing the current state of counter-terrorism operations on varying scales, from local to national to private security firms.

Professor Odom addressed the topics of Profiling, Terrorism and Stop and Frisk Policies bringing his insights as a New York Police veteran and lawyer to the conference. He referenced recent terrorist acts such as the attack in Nairobi as well as more infamous 911 attack in New York and London’s 7/7 bombing. His observations of the values and pitfalls of many metro racial profiling policies and their relation to terrorism profiling provided valuable information to the forum.
