Reseach Interests

Tim Bryan is a sociologist and socio-legal scholar whose primary research interests involve the policing of hate crime, race and racism, Canadian multiculturalism and criminal justice in Canada. Dr. Bryan’s current research examines the policing of hate crime by municipal police services, particularly the way commitments to racial and cultural diversity, and efforts to improve police-community relations inform the intervention strategies of police. Dr. Bryan has conducted policy research for the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police on law enforcement efforts to combat hate crime in Ontario, and has presented his findings to municipal police services in Ontario.
