Criminal Justice Education Directory, 1978-80.
Blair, Judi, Ed.
This directory, a result of questionnaires circulated by the Behavioral Research Division of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, provides information on the types of programs and number of degree granting institutions that exist in the field of police science in the United States. The introduction traces the growth of police training programs from the first such program founded by August Vollmer in 1908 to the need for a directory of over 800 criminal justice education curricula. Section I contains three tables: table 1 gives the number of justice degree programs available by state; table 2 provides criminal justice personnel enrollment data by state, indicating whether police, judicial, or correctional personnel; and table three gives student enrollment data by state providing figures for both full- and part-time. Section II, the major portion of the document, provides an alphabetical listing of criminal justice programs by state, including degrees offered, curriculum areas, and courses offered. Section III describes three things: the law enforcement education programs, including types of financial assistance available, eligibility requirements for a grant, and an address of where to obtain further information; the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, including its purposes, a description of two documents it has published, and the name and address of a person to contact for further information; and the American Association of Doctoral Programs in Criminal Justice and Criminology, including its purpose, areas of conern, and names and addresses of two people to contact for further information. Section IV contains a description of eighteen publications available from the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP). (A publications order form is provided.) Also included in this section are blank questionnaire forms to be used by institutions to indicate additional program offerings or adjustments to current programs listed in the directory. (JH)
