Justin Boardman is a 15-year veteran of the West Valley City Police Department in West Valley City, Utah. During his diverse career he served as a patrol officer and in the Property Crimes Unit before finding his true calling as a detective in the Special Victims Unit. His extensive background in police work, and his dedication to victims’ rights and giving them a voice, has allowed him to rapidly become a recognized leader in both private and public-sector organizations with multiple areas of expertise, specifically sexual assault and domestic violence.

In (2013) Justin co-authored a Trauma Informed Victim Interview protocol for adult victims of sexual assault with Donna Kelly Esq. This new protocol uses the Neurobiology of Trauma to gain additional information to be used in the investigation. This process has been studied and has shown to increase prosecutions along with procedure changes and is now the standard for the victim interview process in Utah and neighboring states.

After retiring in 2017, Justin trains and consults globally on a variety of subjects, most notably the trauma informed victim interview and trauma informed investigations that he relentlessly researches and re-designs in order to create better processes that protect victims. His focus is to strengthen investigations that are victim centered, suspect focused, and trauma informed.

He consistently pushes for culture change within the justice system and law enforcement, with a focus on “policing with compassion”. Justin strongly believes that compassion is not a form of weakness, instead, it improves communication, and builds bridges and establishes a system of consistency, belief, and most importantly prosecution of those who harm women and children.
