11 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 PANEL: Crime Control NEWPORT ROOM Chair: Mahfuzul Khondaker-Kutztown University Revitalizing Business Districts through Collaboration, Crime Prevention, and Student Involvement Across the country, we are revitalizing urban main streets. Business districts are significant not only for economic reasons, but also because they can represent the unique identity of the community. This paper describes an ongoing collaborative effort among students of Criminal Justice, Historic Preservation, and Business, to apply concepts learned in the classroom to a business district in Providence, RI. Through field visits, surveys, and crime statistics, students are able to analyze specific crime related problems. Interdisciplinary projects both draw on different collegiate strengths and perspectives, while assisting communities in their quest to improve the quality of life. Julie K. Coon- Roger Williams University Brooke Kourafas- Roger Williams University Elise Murphy- Roger Williams University Timothy Guimond-Roger Williams University Immigration Control as Crime Control: Implications for the Criminal Justice System The convergence of crime and immigration control has fundamentally transformed the role and function of the criminal justice system in post- 9/11 America. This transformation, which is visible in local, national and international contexts, has had far reaching consequences for individuals, criminal justice actors, and for society in general. How has the criminal justice system adapted to this change? How does the system view immigrants in the new securitized environment? And what do the various emergent control strategies mean when assessed against the need for fairness, trust and confidence in the system? This paper will explore these and other critical questions. Karim Ismaili-Kennesaw State University Rental Property Managers as Crime Controllers This paper presents the findings of a mail survey administered to rental property managers where a nuisance rental property ordinance was recently enacted. The survey focused on the rental property management techniques based upon the rental property managers perceived third party policing role of place manager and intimate handler of offender. General opinions regarding the ordinance will also be presented. The survey was conducted in conjunction with a legal impact study of the effectiveness of the ordinance in reducing crime and disorder in rental properties. Greg Koehle-Lock Haven University 11

12 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 Capital Punishment in Connecticut: A Case Study Analysis of What Makes Consideration of Aggravating Factors Particularly Aggravating. This paper advances concepts introduced in two prior ACJS/NEACJS presentations concerning the existence and use of aggravating factors in Connecticut murder cases. The authors present the decisions made and sentences rendered in four murder cases which have occurred in Connecticut in recent years. Beginning with the infamous Cheshire murders, we analyze the four cases and the factors considered in deciding to try them as capital cases, as well examining both jury verdicts and prosecutorial decisions which were rendered in some of the cases not resulting in a death sentence. George Kain-Western Connecticut State University Terrence P. Dwyer-Western Connecticut State University ROUNDTABLE: The Educational Experience: Accolades, Absences, Avenues or Dead-Ends? Bridges This student/faculty panel intends to explore the what and how of practical curricular/instructional efforts regarding perceived potential for pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors and/or terminal degrees. Panelists will address a series of questions attempting to assess preparatory quality across undergraduate and graduate curricula. Discussion will address perceived levels of confidence for career/occupational and intellectual goal attainment from the perspectives of students and faculty. A critical emphasis will be placed on exploring how self-development, self-promotion, and creativity may intersect with contemporary CJ instruction.

14 Thursday, JUNE 7, :00PM~3:30PM PANEL: Research on Groups at Risk Second Concurrent Session Portsmouth Room Chair: Penny Shtull, Norwich University Suspension or Integration: Practicing Restorative Justice in School Problem behaviors including serious delinquent behaviors by school students in and outside of school are common phenomena. Research indicates that some school practices and policies--such as punishment and suspension--themselves are contributing factors to problem and delinquent behaviors. It is important that teachers and administrators know how to deal with a student who does not follow the norms and rules without ostracizing or negatively stigmatizing her/him. This presentation highlights the importance of practicing restorative justice in school as an alternative, nonviolent way of dealing with problems and conflicts. Mahfuzul Khondaker-Kutztown University Nurun Begum-East Stroudsberg University Breaking into Prison: The Academy Developing Relationships with Correctional Agencies How can an institution of higher education access corrections a traditionally closed system? In this presentation training programs for correction staff and administrators provided by the university created access. In an era of government agencies forced to squeeze nickel, university resources can offer modest cost venues and quality content. Establishing relations with correctional agencies offers a return for higher education by opening possible internship, focused tours, and pathways for research venues of difficult entrée. Chris Menton-Roger Williams University Contemporary Issues in Police Officer Willingness to Use Stress Intervention Services In spite of overwhelming evidence of the negative consequences of police stress, research indicates that stress intervention services remain under-utilized by police officers. Few empirical studies have focused on a systematic examination of factors which influence officer willingness to use services. The current study, conducted on a sample of Pennsylvania police officers, provides a contemporary view the issues and factors which influence officer willingness to use stress intervention services. Results challenge some previously held beliefs about police officer use of services and suggest possible cultural changes over the past few decades. Jane Tucker, West Chester University 14

15 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 Human Trafficking in Massachusetts Asian Massage Parlors The purpose of this study is to assess whether women who work in Asian massage parlors (AMP) in Massachusetts are victims of human trafficking. Ten detectives involved in thirteen investigations of AMPs were interviewed pertaining to observable indicators associated with businesses that employ victims of human trafficking. The literature review explores the decriminalization of indoor prostitution in Rhode Island, the culture and economy in China, and the lack of laws in Massachusetts criminalizing human trafficking as contributing factors to the growth of AMPs in Massachusetts. The laws associated with becoming a licensed masseuse, the federal human trafficking laws, and the customer culture are also detailed. In summary, no confirmed cases of human trafficking were identified in this study. Sheri Sarmento-Curry College WORKSHOP: Preparing a Grant Proposal Bridges Many faculty and graduate students would like to obtain external funding to facilitate their research. This session will be directed toward both faculty and graduate students and will discuss the steps in (1) identifying potential funding sources; (2) preparing a successful proposal; and (3) working with funding agencies. The session will be interactive and will be geared to the experience and interest of the attendees Jack McDevitt-Northeastern University PANEL: Teaching Tools Portsmouth Room Chair: Erik Metchik-Salem State University Unintended Consequences: The Multiple Benefits of Implementing Mock Trials in the Classroom This paper addresses the myriad benefits, both unintended and revelatory, of implementing mock trials in the classroom. Criminal law students at a four-year liberal arts college have consistently embraced this pedagogical approach with enthusiasm and gratitude. As a result of implementing mock trials, the majority of the students become more participatory and committed to the respective classes. Most significantly, many students undergo something of a personal metamorphosis during the semester because of the mock trials. Overwhelmingly, students are pleased, proud, and sometimes surprised by all they have achieved in the mock trials, promoting an optimism that is manifested in greater self-confidence. In addition, group work often proves to be a bonding experience among disparate and unfamiliar students, both resident and commuter, and the inclusion of mock trials in the curriculum serves to intensify this experience. Diane White-Anna Maria College 15

16 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 Ethics in the Classroom The teaching of ethics to criminal justice students is of critical importance in the 21 st Century. Several factors illustrate this. First is that the courts have taken an increasingly harsh view of untruthfulness by police officers. Police administrators have displayed little tolerance for these officers due to these court decisions and are increasingly looking to terminate them. Exacerbating this problem is the growing issue of plagiarism among college and university students including criminal justice students. This pool is where police officers are recruited. This presentation argues that schools need to counter this by integrating ethics throughout the criminal justice curriculum, not confining it to a stand-alone course. Marcel F. Beausoleil-Fitchburg State University The Acquisition of Academic and Social Capital through Service Learning Opportunities Available to Criminal Justice Majors Service learning opportunities provide ways in which criminal justice majors can engage in experiential learning, while at the same time assisting community partners with a variety of needs. Through the process of service learning students not only see how course objectives apply to what they are doing during the service learning experience, but a by-product of the process allows for students to gain valuable academic and social capital and enhances their commitment to civic engagement and connects them to the larger community. This paper will focus on the benefits of using service learning opportunities to enhance a criminal justice major s learning experiences and how these opportunities relate to future acquisitions of social capital. Dale Brooker-St. Joseph s College of Maine Police as Educators of Youth: The Establishment of Junior Police Programs and Academies in the 20th Century Junior Police have been around at least since the WWI era when August Vollmer in Berkeley and Arthur Woods in New York City were police administrators. For the greater part of the 20th century police related youth work has centered on events and programs emphasizing and teaching safety on highways and streets with school teachers and children as the particular focus. Today, there are many police sponsored Junior Police Academy and even Homeland Security Exploring programs. Moreover, even agencies like the FBI, DEA, and Secret Service are providing hands-on programs to high school students during school hours. The birth of the crime prevention movement in the 1970s, caused police to produce a wide range of publications and to augment their repertory of presentations. In addition, for the past several decades police officers have been certified by various bodies to serve as both drug and gang resistance educators in schools throughout the nation. This paper explores the rise of these new programs as an expansion of police work whereby police are undertaking the roles of educators. The present and future implications of this development are considered. Martin Greenberg-Miles College 16

17 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 Leadership Sagacity: Advice on Leadership Development from Leaders Law enforcement, on the management level, are tremendously busy people, coping with dwindling budgets, mayors, city councils or selectboards, personnel issues, the media, and their own continuing education. Leadership training, according to a survey of Massachusetts police chiefs, should commence at the earliest stage of the law enforcement career, in the police academy. This follow-up research presents in-depth interviews with leaders from various venues in law enforcement. The leaders offer their candid assessments of executive training programs, business strategies they have utilized and how the traits of a leader were or were not fostered through schooling, mentoring, management programs and on the job training. The goal of this research is to extrapolate viable suggestions from experienced leaders on what it takes to create strong programs for the future. Alice Perry-Anna Maria College ROUNDTABLE: Perspectives on Pursuing a Ph.D. in Criminology and Criminal Justice Room TBA Even though academic institutions are experiencing challenging economic conditions, the number of students applying to doctoral programs in criminology and criminal justice appears to be increasing. This session explores recent trends in doctoral education, faculty expectations, and technology in the academic environment. Participants also share their expertise and recommendations for how applicants can navigate among various doctoral programs, develop strategies to survive (and thrive) in graduate school, establish a rapport with other students, and identify a mentor. Moderator: Alida Merlo-Indiana University of Pennsylvania Discussants: Steven Belenko-Temple University Pauline Brennan-University of Nebraska at Omaha Alan Lizotte-University at Albany Cassia Spohn-Arizona State University. 3:30PM~3:45PM Coffee Break Middletown Room Sponsored by Southern New Hampshire University 3:45PM~5:15PM Third Concurrent Session PANEL: Theoretical Approaches to Explaining Crime Newport Room Chair: AnnMarie Cordner-Kutztown University Social Networks of Crime: An Exploratory Analysis of Co-offending Patterns in High Point, North Carolina This paper presentation explores co-offending patterns amongst offenders for a 10 year period in High Point, North Carolina. Using arrest and offense data from , 17

18 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 exploratory analysis using NodeXL and GIS is performed to identify similarities and differences in co-offending patterns across groups (age, race, and gender) and crime types. Policy implications based on findings are also discussed. Michael Spadea-Curry College Aileen Wournos: Can the Concept of a Shadow Self Shed Light on the Motives of a Killer? This paper presents a case study of American female serial killer Aileen Wournos by critically examining the actions of one serial killer through the lens of Ken Wilber s Integral Theory. By incorporating concepts related to an integral victimology, the cycle of violence, and self-development, the intention is to offer a deeper, integral understanding of a killer s actions and motives. This paper will describe a detailed background of Ms. Wournos as it may apply to the development of a Shadow Self. Elizabeth Neel-Slippery Rock University Dr. Patrick Harvey-Slippery Rock University Familial Socialization Processes as Social Control of Delinquency: A Multilevel Analysis of Containment Theory Containment theory has long been overlooked as a viable theoretical explanation for factors contributing to the prevention of delinquency. Some proponents claim premature dismissal of the theory (Dodder & Long, 1980). This study examines the effects of both inner and outer containment, combined with societal pushes and pulls, on limiting youth s delinquent behavior. Using multilevel modeling regression analysis on data from the International Dating Violence Survey (IDVS), this study offers empirical support that containment provides a degree of prevention from delinquency. This study further supports continued research on the function of familial socio-economic status in studying delinquency. Policy implications discussed. Aimee Delaney Lutz-University of New Hampshire An Examination of the Differences Between Urban and Rural Offenders in Pennsylvania Given the significant differences in the services available in rural and urban areas, it is likely that differences will also exist in the needs of rural and urban offenders once they have been remanded to the Department of Corrections. This paper investigates the programming needs of offenders who have been remanded to the custody of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections from 1996 through Particular attention will be paid to offenders who have committed sex and drug offenses.

19 Thursday, JUNE 7, 2012 ROUNDTABLE: Advancing the Professionalization of Criminal Justice: The Pros and Cons for Establishing a 'Certified Criminal Justician Program' Bridges The last few decades has witnessed the development of a variety of national certification programs related to criminal justice education, albeit in niche areas--such as security management, fraud investigation, crime prevention, DARE educator, etc. In addition, the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) also certifies degree programs. This roundtable will address the pros and cons for the ACJS to create an individual student certification program leading to the title of "criminal justician" for criminal justice degree holders and successful field test takers. The present and future implications of this proposal will be considered. Moderator: Martin Greenberg-Miles College Discussants: Carolyn D'Argenio-Onondaga Community College Denise Kindschi Gosselin-Western New England University David F. Owens-Onondaga Community College Cassandra L. Reyes-West Chester University Larry Rosenberg-Millersville University of Pennsylvania Penny Shtull-Norwich University WORKSHOP: Developing Online Academic Programs in Criminology and Criminal Justice Aquidneck Room This presentation explores the idea of developing fully online programs. Discussions surround the practice of relevant needs-assessments and marketing studies for niche, online programs. Specific programs to be covered include a Master of Arts in Applied Criminology, Master of Science in Legal Studies, and Spanish for Law Enforcement. Other topics to be covered include: best practices for curriculum development, identifying special characteristics of teaching methodologies and quality measures, the use of learning management systems (LMS), third-party add-ons, and the help desk. Finally, marketing of online programs, including lead generation, and print media will be covered.

21 Friday, JUNE 8, :30AM~10:00AM Fourth Concurrent Session PANEL: Law and Legal Issues Portsmouth Room Chair: Arthur Garrison, Kutztown University Only in the Mind of a Dogged Prosecutor: Does Environmental Crime Exist? Decisions to prosecute environmental crimes stem from a number of hurdles: everything from the rigors of making a case against an environmental offender or company, to the differing legal standards to adopt a chemical in industry versus standards used to assess the harm to humans from its use. The presenter will examiner some of the reasons why prosecutors might not pursue criminal cases for environmental violations and the differential punishments resulting for environmental criminal behavior versus more traditional crimes. Melanie Pallone-SUNY Fredonia Massachusetts Police Career Incentive Pay Program: Credit Accumulators Versus Critical Thinkers In 1970 the legislature of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts enacted the Career Incentive Pay Act for police officers. This legislation, widely known as the Quinn Bill, was intended to professionalize the police by offering extra pay for higher criminal justice education. Based on recommendations of the President s Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice (1967) the federal Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) was created and through the Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP) provided funding which allowed police officers the opportunity to obtain college degrees through police science, or police administration programs. These early programs were the forerunners of today s criminal justice programs. This presentation will examine whether the Quinn Bill has been successful in professionalizing the police officers of the Commonwealth, and if today s generation of criminal justice students are simply credit accumulators waiting for an appointment to a law enforcement agency, or are becoming critical thinkers who will professionalize policing as recommended by the President s Commission over forty years ago. The presentation will draw from the speakers five years of teaching various law enforcement classes at one of the largest public criminal justice programs in the Commonwealth, as well as, his twenty years of experience as a sergeant with the New York Police Department (NYPD) where higher education is not compensated with extra pay.

22 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 A Rocky Road: The Path of the Relationship between the United States and International Criminal Tribunals The relationship between the United States and international criminal tribunals started at the Conference on the Preliminaries of Peace in Paris after the First World War. Since then, the United States has supported many international, multi-national, and internationalized criminal tribunals, while not supporting others. The purpose of this paper is to introduce the historical relationship between the United States and international criminal tribunals and describe certain elements required for an international criminal tribunal to gain United States support. Harry Rhea-Irish Centre for Human Rights, National University of Ireland, Galway Strip Searches, Police Devises, Police Perjury, and Ineffective Counsel During Plea Bargaining: The Supreme Court and Issues of Law and Not Justice As the October 2011 term of the Supreme Court came to end the Court held that anyone arrested and detained in jail was subject to being stripped and inspected, that the placing of a tracking device on a car is a search, that police have absolute immunity even in cases of perjury, and the plea bargaining stage of criminal justice system is a stage that a claim of ineffective counsel is applicable. This paper will review these recent decisions and how the Court focuses less on the injustice within cases and more on the law as applied to the cases. Arthur Garrison-Kutztown University PANEL: Action Research on Crime and Criminal Justice in Rochester, NY Newport Room Chair: John McCluskey-Rochester Institute of Technology Spatial Factors, Burglaries, and Burglars This paper presents an empirical analysis of the distance between known burglaries and burglars arrested. Data for this project come from the Rochester (N.Y.) Police Department and covers the years of The purpose of the study is to geospatially analyze burglaries and known burglars and identify patterns, especially those involving distance to crime. Results are compared to the current literature and future directions for research are considered George Mackenzie-Rochester Institute of Technology Arindam Ghosh- Rochester Institute of Technology John McCluskey-Rochester Institute of Technology 22

23 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 The Exploration of Gun Violence and Prevention: Towards the Development of an Inclusive Database This project involves an action research exploration of gun violence patterns in Rochester, NY. The existing data from the Rochester police department will be analyzed and compared with other U.S. data sources to identify the patterns of firearm-related crimes and related characteristics. Next that research will be evaluated in terms of knowledge gaps in the existing Rochester data and best practices from other locations. The findings will be used as a foundation for the creation of an inclusive database for all shooting incidents within the City of Rochester. The database will then be discussed as a mechanism to track, predict, and prevent future acts of gun-related crime. Audrey DiPoala-Rochester Institute of Technology Building Community-Police Relations: An Analysis of Project TIPS Project TIPS (Trust Information Programs Services) is an innovative organization that focuses on building and strengthening inter and intra community relations, especially with law enforcement, in the Rochester Area. This paper examines the history of TIPS, analyzes surveys conducted by TIPS, and discusses changes in the projects orientation in the future. Michael Langenbacher-Rochester Institute of Technology Danielle DiGaspari-Rochester Institute of Technology Breaking and Entering: An Analysis of Female Burglars Female burglars represent a population that is relatively understudied. The current analysis uses data on from the Rochester (N.Y.) Police Department and covers the years of More specifically, the paper explores data on 26 females arrested for burglary in that period. Contemporary female involvement in burglary, including consideration of co-offending patterns and prior criminal histories, is explored and compared with prior research on the topic (e.g., Mullins & Wright, 2003). Erin Doyle-Rochester Institute of Technology Tristen Durand-Rochester Institute of Technology ROUNDTABLE: Innovations in Criminal Justice--A Partnership Initiative Bridges This panel will discuss the formation of and direction for the newly proposed ad hoc committee on standards, accreditation, and cooperation in criminal justice training and education. This committee is charged with the exploration and implementation of establishing a partnership between the organizational world of academia and industry. The panel marks the first time that leading academics formally join forces to solve mutual concerns through collaboration and initiation of practical steps leading to the imposition of standards over the education and training of private security and homeland security personnel. It is proposed that the NEACJS, ACJS and ASIS cooperate to accomplish 3 23

24 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 goals: (1) identify minimal standards for training in institutional programs and propose a model curriculum; (2) promote accreditation of programs through a joint ACJS ASIS accreditation procedure, perhaps hosted by CHIA; and (3) work toward establishment of a consortium of institutions of higher education to offer high quality degree programs on line.

Jonathan Kremser-Kutztown University 10:00AM~10:15AM Coffee, Fruit & Pastry Middletown Room Sponsored by Looseleaf Law 10:15AM~11:45AM Fifth Concurrent Session PANEL: Law Enforcement Portsmouth Room Chair: Gary Cordner, Kutztown University Women in Law Enforcement: Recruitment, Retention, and the Female Experience in Policing Most law enforcement jobs are often thought to be manly in our society. Women, however, have significantly changed the field of law enforcement. Although women have come a long way in policing, their representation in the field is still very small. This paper explores the issue by examining what fields women were working in prior to their career in law enforcement, and exploring their experiences throughout their careers. Qualitative interviews with female police officers will focus on those issues that might better inform future recruitment and retention practices of women in policing.

25 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 The Relationship Between an Officer s Level of Education and the Likelihood/Frequency of On-the-Job Assault The purpose of this research was to explore the relationship between an officer s education level and the likelihood/frequency of assault on that officer. Survey research, employing a combination of convenience and snowball sampling techniques of 133 municipal police officers from 8 departments throughout 4 counties in New Jersey, was used. Simple regression analyses, testing the relationship between an officer s level of education and the self-reported history of assault on the job, discovered that as an officer s level of education increased, the likelihood/frequency of physical assault decreased. Results may suggest another beneficial effect of higher education for police officers. John Shjarback-Monmouth University Has 30 Years Made a Difference? Attitudes of Male Criminal Justice Majors Towards Female Police Officers Revisited (Again) Male criminal justice students attitudes towards female police officers are compared with those reported by Golden (1981) and Austin and Hummer (1994), the most recent researchers to study this topic. Unlike the previous research, while some items indicate support of male criminal justice students for female police officers, overall a decrease in support was found since those other studies were conducted. P.J. Verrechia-York College of Pennsylvania Developing Mentoring Programs for Newly Hired Parole Officers The purpose of the research was to determine if Recruit Parole Officers believe they are being prepared for their field assignments in the best method possible. This was based upon the hypothesis that contemporary training methods such as mentoring, would be more beneficial when used in the development of Recruit Parole Officers. The current system of basic academy training and the infrequent use of field training are inadequate to properly prepare Recruit Parole Officers for their field assignments. The research revealed a high level of support for using peer mentoring as an effective learning strategy in the organization. Kathleen McDonnell-New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision PANEL: Student Award Panel Newport Room CHAIR: John Mockry-Clinton Community College Aikido: a Form of Restorative Justice for Juvenile Delinquents Today, few fail to recognize that Martial Arts is more about how an individual grows on a personal and spiritual level and not always about competitive fighting. Aikido, in 25

26 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 particular, focuses on the concept of being Zen. This paper concentrates on how Aikido may be useful in helping juvenile delinquents change their behavior as an alternative to reoffending and being put behind bars. It is an exciting way to promote positive behaviors. Offering Aikido classes might help them address their personal issues that are influencing their negative behaviors and possibly lead to a new and positive beginning for some kids. Kristen John-Roger Williams University Deontology, Utilitarianism and Correctional Officer Corruption This paper highlights and discusses various minor and major forms of correctional officer corruption. In addition, this paper also addresses the two major ethical theories of deontology and utilitarianism and utilizes these two ethical theories to analyze correctional officer corruption. Shannon R. Leslie-Indiana University of Pennsylvania Effects of Sexual Assault Crimes on College Campuses Sexual assault crimes have become a serious dilemma on college campuses. According to Policies, Safety, and & U ( ), forcible sex offenses are defined as any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against that person s will (p.4). In this study there will be a questionnaire given to both criminal justice students, as well as, psychology students; to compare the awareness of sexual assault in a more mature and direct manner while dealing with Penn State students. If we directly focus on the Penn State student, we can have a better understanding of their knowledge on what sexual assault is to them. This can help the study advance in a positive direction. With sexual assault offenses happening on and off-campus more often, this paper will focus on the awareness and views of sexual assault crimes on the Penn State Schuylkill Campus. Information proposed by this paper will then be useful in creating primary and secondary preventions for past and potential victims of sexual assault crimes.

27 Friday, JUNE 8, :00PM~1:30PM Sixth Concurrent Session PANEL: Entrepreneurial approaches to teaching Newport Room Chair: Emanuel Boussios-Nassau Community College Walking the Third Rail: Gainful Employment and the Criminal Justice Academic Program There have been major occurrences on the nation level which have had a major impact on the proprietary-college industry. The effect of these actions has not been restricted to the administrative levels of for-profit entities. Those charged with curriculum development and instruction are tasked with ensuring that all students not only receive quality instruction, but must demonstrate that what is being taught and assessed possesses a concrete nexus to market-related skills. This creates a quandary for Criminal Justice faculty and administrators that staff them. For-profit colleges must demonstrate a program s ability to place students in the professions that their chosen discipline serves. Although control over curriculum design and quality may be maintained and improved, many of the assets that Justice field employers seek are beyond the control of the college. Maturity, reasoning, common sense, appropriate decision-making and other behavior-related aspects may be modeled by faculty, but are difficult to teach. In response to the Act, a number of initiatives must be developed and delivered to demonstrate that we are doing anything and everything possible to prepare a student for professional employment that will allow the students the ability to pay their student loans back. Jeffrey S. Czarnec-Hesser College Computer Crime Investigation and Digital Forensics: The Need for a Multidisciplinary Education As incidences of computer based crimes grow, so does the need for individuals educated in computer crime investigation and digital forensics. Few schools offer undergraduate programs in computer crime investigation or digital forensics, and many programs that are offered fail to address the multidisciplinary needs of such programs. Programs that are based in criminal justice do not provide the technological expertise needed by practitioners while programs based in computer science do not provide students with an adequate background in criminal justice theory. This same trend exists in college textbooks along with rapid obsolescence, common to computer technology related fields. Susan E Traudt-University of New Haven 27

28 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 Enhancing Quality in Online Criminal Justice Programs Excelsior College has seen substantial growth in its online criminal justice program and currently has 537 enrolled students. The presenter will share strategies for ensuring quality within that program. With a focus on curricular rigor and currency, the ECCJ Programs have expanded the use of multimedia, curriculum mapping and backward design to link quality standards to course content through the use of assessment results. We have also implemented techniques to improve quality of instruction, via regular auditing of courses, improved instructor support and training, hiring more instructors with terminal degrees, and implementing standards for course interaction between instructors and students. Michael Verro-Excelsior College Criminal Justice Curricula: Student, College Professor, and Police Chief Views for the Future The purpose of the study was to examine the New York State undergraduate college students, college professors and police chiefs views of criminal justice curricula. A triangular design methodology was used. Participants included urban and suburban undergraduate college students studying in a criminal justice curriculum; criminal justice college professors who teach in both an urban and suburban setting; and police chiefs who work in both an urban and suburban setting. The findings of the study are intended to provide educators with an understanding of the additional courses that are needed and desired in an undergraduate criminal justice curriculum. The findings suggested undergraduate college students, college professors, and police chiefs were in agreement in the needs of Terrorism and Disaster Management, Homeland Security, Security of Information Technology, and Cyber-crimes to be incorporated in the curriculum. Errol Toulon-Dowling College Transformational Curricular Architecture: Reinventing Program Viability through Innovative Intrapreneurial Architectural Design Methods Colleges across the country are competing for the waning student dollar. In a struggle to produce more programs, the focus remains external, or entrepreneurial, to draw new students to keep the balance sheets viable. Often, this external focus leads to continuing production of the same old programs falsely repackaged as new and innovative. Consequently, failing to recognize the internal strengths of programs leads to missed opportunities for creating new markets for growth and sustainability. What is required is radically rethinking and reinventing current program shells into new educational opportunities that result in rebranding and growth in this highly competitive market. Frank A. Colaprete, Keuka College/Justice Systems Solutions 28

29 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 PANEL: Student Award Panel Aquidneck Room Chair: John Mockry Violent Socializations and Delinquency across 32 Different Nations: Variations in individual and structural social control influences Delinquency should be controlled through various socializing agents. But when violence is embedded within the methods of socialization used by these agents, control over youth behavior may be ineffective and instead contribute to delinquency. Yet what constitutes as violent socialization may vary across different nations, producing a differential effect on the delinquency within that nation. This study uses data collected from 32 nations in the International Dating Violence Study to determine if violent socialization varies as a national context effect in predicting delinquency. The results from multilvevel modeling regression analysis indicate that violent socialization varies across different nations, and that violent socialization, both occurring within the family and as a national context effect, significantly predicts delinquency. Aimee Delaney Lutz- University of New Hampshire Badges vs. Masks: Portrayals of Formal and Informal Crime Control in Graphic Novels The current study explores the role of the vigilante and how vigilantes and legitimate law enforcement are portrayed in graphic novels. It examines the relationship between the two entities and the effectiveness of each. It also explores motivation for vigilante action through application of criminological theory. Based on a review of the literature, I hypothesize that people are motivated to vigilante action because of a personal urge to maintain justice. I also hypothesize that graphic novels will portray vigilantes and police as having a negative relationship, with the police being portrayed as incompetent and ineffective. A current analysis of ten modern graphic novels reveals that a strong personal urge to fight crime plays a large factor in vigilante motivation, as well as a belief that the responsibility to fight crime has been bestowed upon the hero. However, the police and the vigilantes do not generally share a negative relationship, nor are the police generally portrayed as incompetent, even though the vigilante is the most effective crime fighting entity.

30 Friday, JUNE 8, 2012 ROUNDTABLE: Young Offenders and Child Victims: Implications for Juvenile Justice Policy Bridges Current policies in juvenile justice reflect a realization of youth vulnerability and victimization as well as a continuation of the harsh sanctions that characterized the 1990s. Participants will discuss these issues and the U.S. Supreme Court s decision in the cases involving Kuntrell Jackson and Evan Miller that focused on whether life without parole (LWOP) sentences for 14 year old youth convicted of homicide constitute a violation of the 8th Amendment prohibition on cruel and unusual punishment. The ambivalence toward youth as well as a greater emphasis on a balanced approach will be examined. Possible future directions in the system s response to youth will be explored.
