Dr. Philip Stinson '92, an Assistant Professor of Human Services at Bowling Green State University, just won a National Institute of Justice (NIJ) grant from the U.S. Department of Justice in excess of $260,000 to study the arrest records of on– and off-duty law enforcement officers across the nation.

According to Stinson, the research is important because there are no comprehensive statistics available on problems with police integrity, and no government entity collects data on criminal arrests of U.S. police officers.

"The lack of statistics on police crime should be troubling to police executives, researchers, policymakers and the general public,” he added.

Stinson and his colleagues expect to determine the nature and extent of police crime nationally.

"Police agencies cannot formulate effective policies to confront these problems until they know what types of crimes police are most likely to commit and the factors that seem to influence their commission,” Stinson said.
