We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Randall Lockwood, Senior Vice President for Forensic Sciences and Anti-Cruelty Projects at the ASPCA, has been honored with an Achievement Award by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences.
The award was delivered at the Annual Scientific Meeting, held in Seattle this past February. Over the last 25 years, Dr. Lockwood has served as an expert on dog aggression, dog bite prevention, dog fighting, and the interactions between people and animals. He has given testimony in numerous trials involving cruelty to animals, and has written several books on the subject. In addition, his efforts to increase awareness of the connection between animal abuse and other forms of violence were profiled in the 1999 BBC documentary “The Cruelty Connection.” He is an active leader of The Link Coalition, a network of animal welfare and human service professionals who focus on “The Link”—areas where animal cruelty, domestic violence, child abuse, and elder abuse intersect. His most recent book is this year’s Animal Cruelty and Freedom of Speech: When Worlds Collide.
Dr. Lockwood has been with the ASPCA since 2005, and we thrilled and proud to congratulate him on this latest achievement.
