Our Story

Collaborative Crime Solutions

Dr. Barbara BaileyCollaborative Crime Solutions is the brain-child of Dr. Barbara Bailey, a lifelong criminal justice professional, educator and facilitator. Dr. Bailey’s life mission and vision are to bring a more holistic approach to the field of Criminal Justice. She strives to be part of the movement that brings a higher level of consciousness to solve the problem of crime and victimization.

Dedicated to helping both men and women in the criminal justice system find their voice, Dr. Bailey helps her clients realize their ingrained beliefs they may lead with that are based on the notion of “what always has been.” Dr. Bailey aims to help you develop the courage to explore new ways of solving the Criminal Justice field’s biggest problems. 

Prior to her work as an educator, Dr. Bailey worked in the field as a sheriff’s deputy for 10 years. She holds advanced degrees in criminal justice and has studied many holistic modalities, ensuring a varied and well-rounded approach to problem solving. 

But her years of experience never prepared her for her biggest life lesson. In 2015, when she was suddenly faced with a life-threatening traumatic illness that required a bone marrow transplant, her world fell apart, causing everything she knew as normal to be lost. Once Dr. Bailey recovered, she was able to relate her near-death experience to what is happening today with old and outdated systems. 

After being given a second chance at life, Dr. Bailey decided to do everything she could to recreate the criminal justice system from the inside out. She now uses many of the same principles in conjunction with criminal justice research to serve her clients so they can tap into their inner guidance system, become more self assured, improve their organization, create new policy/programs or solve community issues.

Gaining an entirely new perspective on life and wanting to give back to her community, in 2016 Dr. Bailey became a visitor with Prisoner Visitation and Support (PVS), where she met a young man serving a lengthy sentence at the ADX, the highest security federal prison in the country. It was here that she got an inside look at what an impact policy and prison culture have on the incarcerated. This is the moment that brought her full circle, from experiencing the stress and burnout of working in the system to understanding the real-world impact of policies and approaches. 

These experiences, combined with her field and educational experiences, are what drive her passion for helping innovative leaders create positive change in their organizations and communities. With Collaborative Crime Solutions, Dr. Bailey is now able to bring her extensive experience and knowledge to Fremont County, Colorado where she can have a direct impact on the vast community of Criminal Justice professionals in the area.
