Michelle Gulino, FBI Employee | FBI

Dr. Brian Kelly,

I am writing to you at this time to share some great news. As you are my former academic adviser and Senior criminal justice professor, as well as being a character reference for my Federal Top Secret Clearance background investigation for my internship at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, I want to notify you that I accepted an offer to remain as an employee with the FBI, in the Newark, NJ field office.

As you stated, this is a great opportunity, and I wanted to you to know that I accepted this offer.

Also, throughout the years, your seminars on Cybersecurity, Counter-terrorism, Fraud Detection, and Interviews/Interrogation have allowed me to put various aspects of my academic background to test in the field. I wanted to thank you for that. Furthermore, I decided to study for the Certified Fraud Examiner designation that you recommended, as I know it will also increase my skill-set in the workplace.

Once again, thank you for your advice and assistance over the last few years.

Re: Thank You for assistance

As my former Criminal Justice Professor, I wanted to write to you to communicate some life changing news. A short time ago, you took the time to guide and assist me in the area of interviewing for several law enforcement agencies who notified me about my candidacy for hire to become a police officer in their jurisdiction.

Aside from assisting me create a professional resume based on my military police experience from the US Navy, and my academic background, the interview questions you created, as well as the mock police applicant interview we conducted, proved to be incredibly helpful.

I am proud to say that your expertise and assistance has allowed me to obtain the position as County Police Officer for the Union County Police Department in Westfield, NJ. The police academy begins July 14th, 2017 at the John H. Stamler Police Academy in Scotch Plains, NJ.

Based on your help, I truly believe that my transition from military to law enforcement employment has become much easier, and well-prepared, regarding interview opportunities for any agency that considers me for hire. Thank you once again for your professional guidance and expertise in the field of Criminal Justice.

Respectfully Submitted,
Anthony Pall

Attention: Mr. Peter Crescentj

Dear Mr. Crescenti:

May 31,2017

It is my pleasure to send you this letter of endorsement for Dr. Brian P. Kelly, a member of the Department of Security Systems and Law Enforcement Technology.

I was first introduced to Dr. Brian Kelly this past March when he agreed to be a presenter for the Long Island Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. As the current Chapter President I always try to ensure that we provide our members and guests with engaging and interesting speakers and topics.

The meeting Dr. Kelly spoke at was our Annual Young and New Professional's meeting; our yearly event in which we invite college students, graduate students and young people newly entered into the professional world to experience our meetings and learn about the Certified Fraud Examiner designation. This designation encompasses professionals from Law Enforcement, Security, Accounting and Auditing to be proactive in deterring fraud and investigating it when i t occurs.

Dr. Kelly's topic was the "Ten Tall Tale Signs of Deception". Brian engaged the audience with his knowledge and anecdotes. His professional background in Law Enforcement provided him with the most insightful examples of deception, how to spot them and how to handle the investigation/interrogation. His lecture was very well received and in fact, Dr. Kelly will be presenting again to the Long Island Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners this fall. I have tasked Brian with putting together a "Mini Reid Technique of Interviewing" lecture for our chapter members. This is no small task and i t is a very sought after topic in the field of anti-fraud prevention field. He is also a valued member who always gives thoughtful feedback to the board. Dr. Kelly's presentations would be a benefit to any organization that has him present at their meetings.
