Justice major presents at Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences annual meeting

Justin Voss, Anchorage Police officer and Justice major, presented on "Patrol Officer Activity Tracking: Accuracy, Productivity, Morale" on February 26, 2010 at the annual meeting of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in San Diego. Officer Voss's presentation was part of a section on "Police Organizational Management." This undergraduate research project was supervised by Dr. Marny Rivera, Justice Center faculty.

Officer Voss developed a patrol activity tracking system for use by the Anchorage Police Department. He discussed how this tracking system could capture not only calls for service, but also the amount of time and effort a patrol officer spent on each case.
