Hiding in plain sight.
That's the goal of sex offenders and child abusers as they seek to commit their crimes without fear of detection. Offenders do so by exploiting society's lack of understanding about how these crimes occur and our failure to acknowledge the reality that sex crimes and child abuse occur in every one of our communities. Twardesky Consulting believes that with better knowledge and education, investigators and others can identify the behavioral characteristics of the offenders to hold them accountable with the ultimate goal of protecting the innocent.
Detective Jim Twardesky started in law enforcement as a police cadet with the Wayne State University PD in 1999 and joined fulltime after graduating the Wayne County Regional police academy in 2002. In 2006 he was hired by the City of Warren PD and promoted to the detective bureau in 2014 where he has been assigned to the Special Victims Unit since. In that capacity, he has investigated hundreds of sexual assaults and other violent crimes against children including multiple child homicides and serial sex offenders. A number of those investigations have received significant media attention both locally and nationally. Detective Twardesky has attended numerous advanced police training courses in addition to having both a bachelors degree in criminal justice and a masters in public administration from Wayne State University in Detroit, MI. He serves as an adjunct instructor at the Macomb Community College Public Service Institute teaching undergraduate criminal justice courses and advanced police training seminars for the Macomb Criminal Justice Center. Detective Twardesky has lectured about sexual assault and crimes against children at police academies, colleges and professional conferences throughout the State of Michigan. Audiences have included law enforcement, child protective services workers, prosecutors, social workers, and CAC staff.
