Manchester, N.H. (Sept. 26, 2006) – Former Massachusetts State Police Colonel and Superintendent, Thomas J. Foley, has joined the faculty of Southern New Hampshire University.  Foley, the lead supervisor of the investigation that led to the indictment of James “Whitey” Bulger, will serve as an adjunct professor for Southern New Hampshire University’s new program in justice studies. The online Master of Science program is scheduled to begin in March 2007.  The residential undergraduate program is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2007.

Foley, a native of Worcester, Mass., has served for more than 26 years in law enforcement and has been assigned to numerous areas throughout Massachusetts, including Brookfield, Sturbridge, Holden and Leominster. He received the coveted and prestigious United States Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service from Attorney General John Ashcroft in 2004.

The graduate program in justice studies is intended for senior justice professionals who must understand law, constitutional protections, finance, budgets and employment policies. Justice and business courses provide the opportunity to analyze and critique operational and public policy from social, administrative, juridical, philosophical and managerial perspectives.

Foley earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from Westfield State College and a master’s degree in criminal justice from Anna Maria College. He also serves on the board of trustees at Nichols College in Dudley, Mass., and Westfield State College.
