Retired detective Justin Boardman was in law enforcement for 15 years, all with the West Valley City Police Department, Utah. His first eight years were spent as a patrol officer in this very active city. In that capacity, he was awarded the Police Star, multiple Life Saving, Distinguished Service, and Meritorious Service awards. During his first year in Investigation's, Justin was awarded Investigator of the Year. He has over the course of his career conducted nearly 300 forensic child victim interviews, and 140 adult sexual assault victim interviews.
Justin co-authored (along with Donna Kelly Esq.) a trauma-informed victim interview protocol for adult victims of sexual assault. This new protocol uses the neurobiology of trauma to gain additional information to be used in the investigation. This process has been studied and has shown to increase prosecutions along with procedure changes.
Justin now presents and consults locally in Utah, nationally, and internationally on a variety of subjects. Recently Justin left active police work to focus on culture change within the community he loves.
