Dr. Myrstol publishes article in American Journal of Criminal Justice

An article by Dr. Brad Myrstol, Justice faculty, and Shila René Hawk-Tourtelot, Department of Criminal Justice, Georgia State University, titled "In Search of Respect: Examining Arrestee Satisfaction with Police," was selected for publication in the upcoming issue of the American Journal of Criminal Justice.  This version of the article is available as part of the "Online First" service of SpringerLink.  The print publication will appear later this year.

The article examines some of the factors that influence arrestees' satisfaction with police, and discusses the implications of these findings for police and jail administrators.

The American Journal of Criminal Justice is a peer reviewed publication offering research on a wide array of criminal justice topics and issues. It is the official journal of the Southern Criminal Justice Association (SCJA).
