Patrick W. Shaver is a police officer in the State of Georgia. He holds his Bachelor's Degree from the University at Buffalo and Master's of Conflict Management from Kennesaw State University. He has lived in Ireland and his studies have taken him through the Middle East. He is an instructor and is crisis intervention (CIT) certified.
Beginning his career in healthcare, he found his niche in public service and served in crisis counseling before becoming an officer. He currently works among the finest men and women in law enforcement. Some of his previous projects have included transcript analysis on a major industrial disaster and a study on Terror Management Theory (TMT) and Mortality Salience effects on group cohesion among police recruits. Most recently, he co-authored an analysis of dialogue and discourse surrounding student action on the boycott and divestment decision at UC Berkeley, published in 2012 in the Journal of Peace and Change.
He is also the founder of IndieClever Media, LLC., an all-things media company established for the production of Officer Involved.
Peter Knudsen is an art director and motion theorist who has been working in broadcast design for over 25 years. After graduation, he hustled his way into a night shift camera operator job at WJXT in Jacksonville, FL. There he learned how to make TV with some of the most talented people in the business. For the last 19 years Peter has been plying his trade for a cable news organization based in Atlanta. There, he has been on the front lines of the visual assault that has been blasted into your living room for over 2 decades. He has worked on visual treatments for many of the most newsworthy events during this time to include show openers and backgrounds, animated explainers, major event re-enactments and 3d models to help illustrate global safety issues. His work each day is driven by the news cycle and he likens it to working in a trauma unit.
Peter first met Patrick in an official role and they came to know each other through their shared interest in community-oriented policing. Not long after Peter completed a Citizen's Police Academy, he found out about Officer Involved and came aboard bringing his craft to help draft visual mediums for storytelling.
