Starting in 1995, when Peter Higgins retired as Deputy Assistant Director in charge of Engineering for the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information Services Division, he established Higgins & Associates, International (HAI) to offer consulting services. HAI provided biometrics and project management consulting services to government agencies (15 US States, a number of federal agencies in the US, Canada, and the UK, as well as police / sheriff departments in several major US counties) and their contractors. These services were led by Peter & Kathy Higgins utilizing the skills of a team of associates selected for specific contracts / projects.
As of October 2016, after 21 plus years, the consulting services have been scaled back to focus on supporting important issues and opportunities. This permits better balancing of work, volunteering, and personal time.
