1 Criminal Justice Department Enhancement Position Request: Presentation to the Educational Policy Committee Dr. Charlie Mesloh, Department Head
2 Criteria #1: Alignment with Mission Intellectual Foundation Our department synthesizes theoretical with practical. Our curriculum focuses students on the historical basis of criminal justice systems from a global perspective, then examines the nature and function of the American system of justice. Active Learning The program concentrates on developing critical thinking, scientific inquiry, writing and public speaking skills. Students have access to applied courses involving problem-solving through the use of technology.
3 Career Preparation Our faculty consists of all former practitioners representing different components of the criminal justice system. This asset is supplemented by classes that are continually updated to reflect the state of the profession. Community Engagement- The department offers service learning courses, a criminal justice club, a study abroad program and internships.
4 Criteria #2: History, Development and Expectations Developed 2-year police science curriculum year Criminal Justice degree created Criminal Justice became an academic dept faculty + 1 department head Criminal Justice masters degree established Established college credit for police academy Loss Prevention program established faculty + 1 department head faculty + 1 department head
5 Criteria #3: External Demand National- Most people only think of the large popular law enforcement agencies (FBI, DEA, etc.) but nearly every single federal agency has an investigative bureau. There are about 120,000 federal officers and agents. Nationwide, there are 765,000 state and local officers in 18,000 agencies. In the private sector, there are about 2 million employed in private security. Regional- There are 2,600 sworn law enforcement officers and 15,000 corrections officers in Michigan.
6 Criteria #4: Internal Demand Sociology students regularly take our courses as there are distinct similarities between our systems. A significant number of students majoring in wildlife and environmental conservation choose a minor in criminal justice to provide a background in law and policing. Five of our CJ courses have been incorporated into the Forensic Bio-Chemistry major as required and elective classes.
7 Criteria #5: Quality of the Program Inputs and Resources Faculty: 1 (department head) 5 (tenured / tenure earning) 17 (contingent / adjunct) Equipment Bob Barrington Library & Reading Room / Correctional Officer Development Center Facilities Forensics Lab Access to law enforcement academy resources

Forty-seven percent of our students (47%) reported that they were employed with twenty-five percent (25%) continuing their education (NMU Career Services, 2013). Employment Outlook - In 2010, BLS reported that state and local law enforcement officers earned on average $55,010 annually. At the federal level, there are 40 specific job series (categories and salary schedules) in over 100 different agencies (FBI, Secret Service, State Dept, etc).

15 Criteria #10: Impact, Justification and Overall Essentiality Student enrollment has grown in the major including the graduate program as a result of active recruitment in neighboring states. A major recruitment plan is under development to substantially increase the size of both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, additional faculty resources are required for our department to keep pace with the regional market.
17 Criteria #11: Opportunity Analysis These positions will allow the department to reduce its overreliance on adjunct instructors while simultaneously reducing the individual advising responsibilities. They will also allow us to create new technologybased classes or programs such as crime mapping / G.I.S. Finally, this will allow the department the opportunity to make a substantial growth increase without sacrificing the integrity of the academic environment.
