Professor Jabbour has been involved in law enforcement for over 30 years and brings real-life cases and scenarios to his classroom.

“I enjoyed the interaction with many, many people and derived great pleasure from the satisfaction of solving some complex investigations that brought closure to crime victims, their families and the criminal justice system.”

He was appointed Education Commissioner with the American College of Forensic Examiners and has been interviewed on an episode of “Snapped” on the Oxygen network to discuss a homicide investigation and forensics at an area school.

Professor Jabbour teaches Forensic Science, Veterinary Forensics, Forensic Psychology, Case Studies and Special Topics in Forensic Science and Emergency Management for Sports Management.
