I am continually impressed with the level of engagement and commitment of South students. I enjoy interacting with the students in the Discussion Assignments. This is where I often show students how the information from the textbook and other assignments relates to current issues and trends in the criminal justice system. These assignments also allow students to examine the problems and dilemmas in the criminal justice system and provide their theories and solutions to better the system. It’s exciting because many of these students represent the next generation of police officers, prosecutors, and corrections officers.
