Timothy Bryan is Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at the University of Toronto. Professor Bryan’s primary research interests include the policing of hate crime, race and racism, Black Canadian Studies, and criminal justice reform in Canada. Professor 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. Professor Bryan’s work appears in the Journal of Hate Studies, the Oñati Socio-Legal Series, and the Canadian Journal of Law and Society. Professor Bryan has also conducted policy research for the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police and Nova Scotia’s Department of Justice.
