The “Innovation in Criminal Justice Education” Award is given annually to a member of the Criminal Justice Department Advisory who has made significant contributions to the Criminal Justice Department and annual advisory committee projects. The 2008 Innovation in Criminal Justice Education Award was given to Seattle Police Department Chief Gil Kerlikowske. Chief Kerlikowske has been a member of the Criminal Justice Department Advisory Committee since its inception in 2004. He serves as an adjunct faculty member in the Criminal Justice Department and teaches “Issues in Contemporary Law Enforcement” a joint undergraduate and graduate course. In 2007-08, Chief Kerlikowske was instrumental in assisting the SU Criminal Justice Department in a range of advisory committee projects and initiatives including the development of the Criminal Justice Department video (which involved the use of SPD video equipment and the expertise of Karim Miller, SPD videographer who edited the video and worked with students who assisted with the project), the Crime Analysis certificate Program, and in supporting a number of collaborative student-faculty-agency research projects including our first Master’s thesis that involved a study of the SPD Crisis Intervention/Hostage Negotiation team entitled “Managing those in Crisis: A Yearlong Analysis of Incidents Handled by the Seattle Police Department” by Elizabeth Neidhart.
The Innovation in Criminal Justice Education award has been given since 2006. The 2006 award went to Kelvin Crenshaw, Assistant Director for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The 2007 Award went to Bonnie Glenn, Deputy Chief of Staff, King County Prosecutor’s Office.
