New Federally-funded database available for Reinhardt students

The National Criminal Justice Reference Service is sponsored by the US Department of Justice's Office of Justice Programs and the National Institute of Corrections, as well as the President's Office of National Drug Control Policy. The National Criminal Justice Reference Service Abstracts database contains more than 205,000 publications, reports, articles, and audiovisual products from the United States and around the world. These resources include statistics, research findings, program descriptions, congressional hearing transcripts, and training materials.

The abstracts include the title, author, sponsoring agency, purchasing address, and journal citation, as well as a 100- to 200-word summary of the document's contents. The database is searchable by keyword and index term.

This database will be of particular interest to those of you who are going into Reinhardt's Public Safety Institute at our North Fulton campus. (Micheal, I am looking at you). The institute provides basic certification and degree programming for fire fighters, law enforcement, emergency medical personnel and military personnel. Cherokee County and a five-city coalition consisting of Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Milton, Roswell, and Sandy Springs, are working in partnership with this program. The Public Safety Institute is working closely with these agencies as well as state and federal homeland security departments. If you want to be involved with helping keep our area safe and prepared, you should contact admissions counselor Ray Schumacher at RES@reinhardt.edu.
