1 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report

2 College of Community and Public Service (CCPS) Mission Statement: The mission of Grand Valley State University s College of Community and Public Service is to educate students for professional careers through excellent teaching, learning, scholarship, and service that promote just and democratic communities and ethical and effective leadership. School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) Mission Statement: The mission of Grand Valley s School of Criminal Justice is to teach, prepare, advise, and assist students to make positive contributions in their chosen vocations within the criminal justice or legal system at the local, regional, national, and international level. Graduates will possess a solid foundation of knowledge and performance skills in the criminal justice field and legal system and will also have the ability to make ethically sound and appropriate decisions in response to the challenges presented to them in their professional and personal lives. Faculty and staff of the School of Criminal Justice will demonstrate, model, and promote a respect for diversity and commitments to integrity, intellectual and moral virtues, and lifelong learning through effective teaching, active scholarship, and service. Director s Statement In a quickly changing world, driven by an exponentially growing knowledge base, Grand Valley s School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) prepares students to be informed and capable community leaders. It is estimated that between 1900 and 1950, human knowledge doubled, and did so again from 1950 to Now, it is believed to double every 900 days and by the year 2020, global knowledge is predicted to double every 72 days! Because the process of learning keeps one mentally active and up-to-date on new information that is being created at such a remarkable rate, it is the charge of the SCJ to prepare its students to be effective lifelong learners. The information age demands sophisticated and culturally competent leaders grounded in contemporary practices that possess the communicative and behavioral skills necessary to meaningfully promote the practice of social justice. High-quality faculty and instruction are hallmarks of the SCJ. SCJ faculty posses an average of approximately 15 years of teaching experience, present diverse personal and professional experiences and research interests, and more than 85% hold a doctorate or other terminal degree. SCJ faculty qualifications include professional justice experience, expert certification, published research papers, articles and books, and other accomplishments that enrich the courses they teach. The SCJ also contains within its ranks several award winning teachers, nationally recognized scholars, and professors actively engaged in consulting for justice organizations at the state, federal, and international levels. SCJ curriculum is designed to support the delivery of fundamental knowledge, new ideas, and significant advances in the field. It teaches students to think, communicate, and act ethically and professionally. The SCJ learning environment has accurately been described by a recent alumnus as a convergence of intellectual assets and contemporary practices. The SCJ s five degree programs including the master s in criminal justice are built on Grand Valley s liberal education foundation, requiring students to demonstrate discipline, critical analysis, research ability, empathy, and integrity in order to advance in their various areas of study. In addition, SCJ sponsored internships and student organizations provide opportunities for students to apply what is taught in the classroom and to learn while advancing social justice. Moreover, unlike many schools that deliver individual courses disconnected from one another, the SCJ provides a uniquely coordinated and integrated set of courses that reinforce the strategic goals to enhance critical thinking, writing, communication, and presentation skills. Having been honored to serve as the director of this school I invite you to review the following pages that have resulted in Grand Valley s School of Criminal Justice rightfully earning its reputation as one of the best criminal justice schools in the nation.

8 School of Criminal Justice Degree Programs It is the purpose of the Grand Valley State University School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) to teach, prepare, advise, and assist students in their efforts toward becoming informed citizens and making positive contributions in their chosen vocations within the criminal justice or legal system. For this reason, the school offers two areas of undergraduate study: criminal justice and legal studies. In either area, students may choose to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree; each program entails a variety of required and elective courses to educate the student as a critical thinker and to provide him or her with a comprehensive knowledge of the field. In addition to the undergraduate degree programs, the SCJ offers a Master of Science (M.S.) in criminal justice that is designed to further prepare students in becoming criminal justice leaders, planners, practitioners, and academicians. This program seeks to create a dynamic community of criminal justice professionals and scholars who will work in concert to offer innovative strategies for advancing and improving current criminal justice programs and practices. Graduate courses provide students with opportunities to apply concepts of ethics, political and social justice, historical analysis of institutions and policy, leadership and management, theories, and scientific research. Moreover, the curriculum also prepares students interested in pursuing a doctoral education with appropriate theoretical, research, analytical, and critical interpretation skills. 12 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report School of Criminal Justice Annual Report 13

9 Our Students The graduates profiled in this report exemplify the personal and leadership qualities promoted by the School of Criminal Justice. Each graduate is an outstanding up and coming professional and/or academician in either the area of criminal justice or the legal community. Moreover, all took the initiative, while completing their degrees, to pursue additional opportunities offered by Grand Valley and the SCJ such as internships, scholarships, graduate assistantships, and travel to conferences supported by awarded grant funding to further enhance their academic experiences. Undergraduate Student Profile, Criminal Justice: Ashley Bergstrom Each year, the Grand Valley State University School of Criminal Justice awards the Shawn Wiersma Memorial Scholarship to exceptional students planning a career in law enforcement or legal studies. Ashley Bergstrom is the 2008 recipient of the Wiersma Scholarship. Ashley attended the GVSU Police Academy during the summer of In addition to her coursework, Ashley works as a police cadet for the Holland Police Department where she is involved in a variety of tasks that provide a solid foundation for her future career in law enforcement. Ashley reflects on her time at Grand Valley positively, and specifically credits Professors Crawley, Yalda, and Hughes with preparing her for success in the police academy as well as her future professional endeavors. Her future plans include returning to school after the police academy to obtain her master s degree in criminal justice. Her advice to current and future GVSU students is to remain focused on why they are in school and to prioritize their education. Undergraduate Student Profile, Legal Studies: Ashley Monroe Ashley Monroe, a 2007 graduate of the legal studies program, was awarded the Bert Price Diversity Scholarship as well as a Legal Studies Outstanding Student Award. While at Grand Valley, Ashley completed an internship with Perry Stuursma Van Dyken PC law firm. Since graduating, Ashley has been employed with Pfizer and has received several promotions. She feels that her general education, legal studies, and criminal justice classes were tremendously helpful in preparing her for her position and future career plans. Ashley also identifies several professors that she found especially influential in her success, including Professors Bailey, Crawley, Yalda, Wallace, Winther, Ross, and Mullendore and has found that her time in their classes has instilled in her an appreciation for deadlines and completing complex projects. Graduate Student Profile: Michael White Mike White, a 2007 graduate of the School of Criminal Justice s Master of Science in criminal justice program, exemplifies the personal and leadership qualities promoted and fostered by the SCJ. Mike is a 23-year veteran law enforcement officer and has recently been promoted as a supervisor with the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety. Mike has recently begun to serve in an adjunct teaching position at Grand Rapids Community College and has had the chance to participate in several training and consulting opportunities, as well as public speaking engagements. He credits his Grand Valley degree with opening the door to these opportunities which he would not have had otherwise. While at Grand Valley, Mike was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and was also named the SCJ Outstanding Graduate Student in Mike was awarded a graduate assistantship (GA) that allowed him to work one-on-one with Drs. Ross and Kierkus. He feels that this position as a GA and his ability to work closely with professors, pursuing his research interests, allowed him to grow both as a student and a person. As a law enforcement officer, Mike believes that his degree experiences have provided him with additional insights to on the job issues. In a recent interview, he recalled, I always had the practitioner s experience but my experience in the graduate program helped to facilitate an understanding of the processes and issues throughout CJ. Similarly, Mike felt that the faculty members at Grand Valley were very amenable to incorporating a practitioner s experience and coupling it with academic and theoretical perspectives. Mike recently completed his thesis, titled Assessing the efficacy of field training officers organizational maturity and their decisions to use communicative competencies. He continues to work as a sergeant for the Kalamazoo Township Police Department and hopes to someday return to school to complete a Ph.D. His advice for students considering working towards their graduate degree in criminal justice is that if they keep an open mind they will be able to transform themselves into a modern professional prepared for any career in criminal justice. 14 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report School of Criminal Justice Annual Report 15

10 Internship Opportunities The School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) encourages its students to participate in one of the many internship opportunities available as part of the degree programs at GVSU. These opportunities are intended to give students an opportunity to gain a valuable understanding of the field, one that simply cannot be acquired in a classroom setting. These opportunities include the potential to network with local professionals, gain real-world experience, and explore the wide range of employment areas available in the field. SCJ students have interned in a variety of disciplines across the community including, but not limited to, law firms, court venues, community outreach organizations, and law enforcement agencies at the county, state, and federal levels. In the past, students have completed internships with the following agencies, companies, and organizations: Law Enforcement Drug Enforcement Administration East Grand Rapids Public Safety Grand Haven Department of Public Safety Jackson Police Department Kent County Sheriffs Department Kentwood Police Department Michigan State Police Muskegon County Sheriff U.S. Marshals Service Courts 17th Circuit Court Family Division 30th Circuit Court Domestic Assault Response Team 61st District Court Kent County Family Division Kent County Victim Witness Mackinac County Prosecutor Corrections Kent County Detention Center Kent County Juvenile Detention Legal Services Charront Hanisch PLC Dale Serik & Associates Dodge & Dodge P.C. John Engman P.C. Carolyn Gaston & Association P.C. Gruel Mills Nims & Pylman LLP Law Office of Margaret Webb PLC Security Alticor Inc. Corporate Security Solutions K Security Other Camp Blodgett Holy Cross Islander Inn Featured Internship Faculty members in the SCJ continue efforts to create unique internship opportunities for students. One such internship is with the Ottawa County Circuit Court-Family Division. This internship was designed to provide students an opportunity to experience the many components that comprise the juvenile justice system. More specifically, the concept that makes this internship unique is that students rotate through a number of different emphasis areas including: detention, Friend of the Court, treatment services, probation services, drug court, and legal services. After a year of planning and coordinating, the Ottawa County Circuit Court- Family Division accepted the first students under their newly designed internship Ottawa County Internship students conducting experiential approaches for treatment with youth. program in July This internship offers students a chance to immerse themselves in the different parts of the court system for a brief period of time. Students shadowed workers, attended specific hearings, interviewed employees, and began gathering information that would help them decide on a specific department where they would finish the remainder of their year-long internship. Using a wide range of diverse opportunities, the Ottawa County Juvenile Court program enhances the interns professional socialization by exposing them to a wide array of professional role models. Additionally, discussions with supervisors, during brownbag lunches, offer structured opportunities for students to integrate theory, research findings and practice and to be able to articulate and critically assess policies, and program design from alternative theoretical perspectives. Student interns develop a sense of identity as juvenile justice practitioners and enhance their professional skills. Additionally, the internship provides opportunities for students to begin establishing a foundation for independent, creative, competent, ethical practice, and continued professional growth. The program is committed to providing interns with the opportunity to develop increasing autonomy and responsibility; every attempt is made to foster the independent functioning of interns while at the same time meeting their training and supervision needs. 16 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report School of Criminal Justice Annual Report 17

The Law Society hosted Women and the Law Night in an effort to encourage women interested in the legal profession to discuss the issues facing women working in the field. Association of Criminal Justice Students The Association of Criminal Justice Students is a new organization that was recently formed with the goal of providing all students interested in criminal justice an opportunity to unite outside of the classroom to advance their knowledge of the study of criminal justice. During 2007 the organization elected officers, began actively recruiting members, and set forth goals for the future, including fundraisers, educational activities rooted in criminal justice, and service to the community.

12 GVSU Police Academy 2007 Having been in existence for 33 years, the Grand Valley State University Police Academy s mission is to educate and train police recruits so that they graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully begin a career in law enforcement. The police academy operates primarily on the Allendale campus with limited activities conducted at local area law enforcement training facilities. The academy is conducted once per year during the spring/summer semester, and admittance to the program is highly competitive. The 2007 police academy consisted of 629 hours of basic law enforcement training delivered in 16 weeks. The graduating class achieved a 100 percent first attempt pass rate on the Michigan Law Enforcement Licensing Examination. Additionally, the program graduates have a 69 % employment rate within eight months of completing the academy. Moreover, Grand Valley s police academy averages a 77 % in-state law enforcement employment rate (within one year of graduation), which is well above the state average. This success is mainly attributed to the excellent cadre of instructors including 15 Grand Valley alumni and eight current faculty and staff members. Criminal Justice Education Center On July 1, 2001, Grand Valley State University and the SCJ formally established the Criminal Justice Education Center (CJEC) to serve Michigan s law enforcement community. The CJEC s mission is to deliver a comprehensive curriculum of career development programs for law enforcement professionals. This mission is accomplished by pursuing grant opportunities and working with educators to develop state-of-the-art training programs. The CJEC is an active member of the West Michigan Criminal Justice Training Consortium (WMCJTC). The WMCJTC is a conglomeration of law enforcement agencies and educational institutions in West Michigan. Its mission is to provide leadership, coordination, and delivery of quality and cost effective criminal justice training and educational programs for criminal justice professionals to enhance the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to provide the highest standard of criminal justice services to the people they serve. Grand Valley s SCJ assisted in the formation of the WMCJTC in 1993 and has continually demonstrated its commitment to support the mission by developing and delivering training initiatives. The CJEC sponsored/hosted numerous in-service law enforcement training programs during 2007, which included issues such as hate crimes, internal affairs investigations, emotional survival for law enforcement officers, police precision driving, police staff and command, and several practical defensive tactics courses. 20 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report School of Criminal Justice Annual Report 21

13 School of Criminal Justice Grant Activities The School of Criminal Justice (SCJ) has housed two federal grants since 2003, both of which are aimed at addressing crime throughout the western district of Michigan. In association with these initiatives, both the university and the SCJ have been afforded many unique opportunities to build strong ties with local agencies and positively impact the community. Further, the value of being involved with these programs extends beyond the obvious as an established relationship between university researchers, community leaders, and criminal justice practitioners potentially serves each in a separate but significant way. The first, Project Safe Neighborhood (PSN), deploys grant monies to various criminal justice agencies in an effort to address gun violence, and more recently, gang-related crime. Previous PSN initiatives have targeted the investigation, apprehension, and prosecution of federal gun-related cases. In addition, community organizations have utilized PSN funding toward the implementation of programs aimed at raising public awareness of gun violence through education and prevention. Such programs have included adult and juvenile education courses about the impact of gun violence, anti-gang formation, gang reduction, and conflict resolution strategies. Partners affiliated with this initiative across the western federal district of Michigan have included the following organizations: Battle Creek Police Department Benton Harbor Police Department Dickinson County Prosecutor s Office Grand Rapids Community Development Grand Rapids Police Department Ingham County Prosecutor s Office Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Kalamazoo County Prosecutor s Office Lansing Police Department Michigan State Police Forensics Division Michigan Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence Minority Health Partnership Muskegon County Prosecutor s Office Tri-County Safe Neighborhoods Coalition Upper Peninsula Substance Enforcement Team The second, Operation Weed & Seed, was originally deployed in 1991, with the specific goal of initiating partnerships among local community groups and criminal justice agencies. These partnerships sponsor initiatives designed to address a wide variety of community needs. Past efforts have involved partnering with the Grand Rapids Police Department in tackling law enforcement issues in the areas of drugs, alcohol, prostitution, and juvenile crime. Other initiatives have involved helping atrisk youth learn and practice basic business skills, conducting seminars on Internet Safety for Teens, and providing class funding for at-risk teen parents. This grant program originally provided federal funding for just 18 sites throughout the country. That number has since grown to more than 300 sites throughout the United States; included in that number is the Central City Weed & Seed (Grand Rapids) site, which is housed in the SCJ. Under the direction of Kristine Jaros, this particular site is currently assisting the Baxter neighborhood. Through their association with this program, both the university and the SCJ have been afforded many unique opportunities to build ongoing relationships with many agencies throughout the community. Some of the many partners affiliated with this initiative include: Weeding Partners 17th Circuit Court 61st District Court Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Grand Rapids Police Department Grand Rapids Public Schools Grandville Police Department Kent County Juvenile Detention Center Kent County Prosecutor s Office Kent County Sheriff s Department Kentwood Police Department Michigan Department of Corrections Wyoming Police Departmentt Seeding Partners Baxter Community Center Baxter Neighborhood Association Eastown Community Association East Hills Council of Neighbors Eastown Ministries Get the Lead Out! Jubilee Jobs! Neland Avenue Christian Reformed Church South East End Neighborhood Association The SCJ has also entered into a partnership with the Michigan Intelligence Operation Center (MIOC). Through grant funding from the United States Department of Homeland Security, Law Enforcement Terrorism Prevention, the SCJ is involved in providing planning and consultant services to the state s Fusion Center in reference to the on-going development of policies, procedures, and operational guidelines for the Michigan Intelligence Operation Center; coordinating the establishment of the MIOC Advisory Board as required by Governor Granholm s executive order; developing, analyzing, and disseminating a survey to all law enforcement agencies in Michigan concerning homeland security and anti-terrorism programs, and the agencies operational readiness. Finally, the SCJ is also involved in providing subject matter expertise in the development and subsequent review of the state s Information Sharing Environment Implementation Plan. Finally, the SCJ, in partnership with Operation Weed & Seed and Dickinson Elementary School, hosted the fifth graders from Dickinson Elementary on June 9, 2006 for the first annual Just Kids Day; a unique anti-bullying program created just for them. This initiative represents one of many established relationships between 22 School of Criminal Justice Annual Report School of Criminal Justice Annual Report 23

14 the community and the university that exists as a result of SCJ s affiliation with this particular grant program. Volunteers, including SCJ faculty, students, and graduates, as well as community leaders, joined to implement the program featuring anti-bullying skits created from stories authored by the fifth graders. According to program organizers, adults often tend to dismiss young people as being just kids, however, this program seeks to highlight young peoples stories including how they experience, understand, and deal with school violence. Following the skits, a Grand Valley graduate spoke to the students about how he was able to overcome school bullying, and they received a guided tour of the Allendale campus before enjoying a pizza party with Grand Valley students and professors. This event provided the opportunity for creating a positive anti-crime program based on student input and initiated a youth-centered justice program that organizers hope to make an annual event. Special Events Hosted by the SCJ March 2007 White Collar Crime (FBI) Seminar April 2007 Asset Forfeiture Training (U.S. Attorney) April 2007 Violent Crimes (FBI) Seminar May 2007 Hate Crimes Seminar (West MI CJ Training Consortium) August 2007 U.S. Attorney General Visit On August 15, 2007 the School of Criminal Justice (SCJ), in partnership with the U.S. Attorney s office, sponsored a training and awareness seminar for criminal justice agencies held on Grand Valley State University s Robert C. Pew campus. This daylong seminar focused on the activities of Project Safe Childhood and Think Before You Post, both Department of Justice programs designed to respond to the increasing need to protect children from computer-facilitated crimes. Specifically, Project Safe Childhood provides funding for investigation and prosecution of such crimes under federal law, while the related efforts of the Think Before You Post campaign are aimed at preventing young females from being victimized by online predators. During the morning session, seminar attendees, including prosecutors, investigators, scholars, and students, were advised on ways to create and foster coordinated efforts to prevent victimization of children in their communities, as addressing these issues requires the collaborative efforts of local, state, and federal law enforcement entities if efforts are to be maximized. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales served as the keynote speaker for the lunch and awards program.
