Paul Brent Foushee

Adjunct Lecturer at UNC Charlotte
{Retired Police Office, CMPD: Vice and Narcotics Unit}

Topic: Societal use of Opioids & Heroin / How did we get here?

Adjunct Lecturer in the Department of Criminal Justice where I teach courses on Police Ethics, Police Culture and Introduction Courses.

From 1993-2017 I was assigned to the Vice and Narcotics Unit and worked Drug and Prostitution cases.  My responsibilities included Undercover work, Executing Search Warrants, Buy Busts, training new Detectives and Department wide instruction involving drug investigations.


During my time in Vice in Narcotics I worked both Federal and State cases and was assigned to the following joint Task Forces:

  • Drug Interdiction Task Force
  • ATF Violent Crimes Task Force
  • DEA (six years) with a focus on national and international heroin organizations.

The last 12 years of my career I worked almost exclusively heroin investigations and have testified as an expert witness on heroin trafficking patterns in Federal Court.


MBA from Pfeiffer University and a Masters in Science in Criminal Justice from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I wrote my graduate theses on the effects of Black tar heroin in Charlotte from 2004-2012. I have also spoken at various conferences on heroin trafficking.

Kings Mountain 

National Military Park

Thomas Jefferson called it "The turn of the tide of success." The battle of Kings Mountain, fought October 7th, 1780, was an important American victory during the Revolutionary War. The battle was the first major patriot victory to occur after the British invasion of Charleston, SC in May 1780. The park preserves the site of this important battle.
