Tony Hamori entered the private sector after serving 28 years with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

He is a licenced private investigator in the province of BC and currently specializes in workplace investigations, pre-employment polygraph testing, and leadership training.
Rob Parker has over 26 years of policing experience, primarily with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in British Columbia, in which he worked in a variety of roles as an investigator and leader. These units include Patrol, Robbery/Serious Crimes and Major Crime/Homicide. Prior to leaving the RCMP in 2018 to enter the private sector, Rob was a commissioned operations officer with the Federal Serious and Organized Crime Unit (FSOC) and the Provincial Major Crime Unit.
Rob holds a BA in Criminology and an MA in Criminal Justice with an emphasis on examining police interviewing behaviours that both increase and reduce the risk associated to the phenomenon of false confessions. He is a subject matter expert (SME) in police investigative interviewing and was a team leader with the RCMP Provincial Interview Team. Rob was also a member of the Team Commander Accreditation Committee in British Columbia.
Rob has taught Criminology classes, as a sessional instructor, at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) and continues to guest lecture at the University of British Columbia (UBC) Law School on the topic of Police Interviewing and Protecting the Innocent from False Confession.
