    Eleven criminal justice students and two criminal justice professors attended the Tennessee Association of Law Enforcement Analysts 2016 Conference in Oak Ridge, Tennessee on October 11-13, 2016.  Drs. Rachel and Roberto Santos, two new faculty in the Department of Criminal Justice and experts in police research and crime analysis, were scheduled to present at the conference and arranged for Radford University students to attend the conference for free.  Dr. Santos and Dr. Santos conducted four presentations during the conference.  This was an exciting opportunity for students to sit in on real crime analysis training and interact with crime analysts and other law enforcement professionals from Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, and many Federal agencies.  Topics covered included: stratified policing, identifying and responding to crime patterns, emergency preparedness, intelligence led policing, drug trafficking trends, DDACTS, terrorism analysis, and others.

    Criminal Justice students who attended the conference were: Sophia Disilvio, Amanda Ferrari-Souza, Courtney Corriere, Julianne O’Brien, Caroline Booth, Elena Linkous, Trevor Reynolds, Laila Long, Mike Brandt, Josh Moore, and Derek Lau.
