Many years ago, Dr. Fred Knowles of Valdosta State University, a long-time Criminal Justice Association of Georgia member, suggested the idea of a journal. Fred has championed the idea ever since, gently prodding the Association’s leadership to create and publish a periodical of timely and germane criminal justice- and pedagogical-related material. Thanks, in no small part, to the efforts of Dr. Steven Hougland, late of Bainbridge State College and now on the faculty of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) as the result of the merger of those two institutions, the Association’s journal, “The Pursuit,” is nearly ready for publication.
The inaugural issue will feature articles on three separate topics spanning education, a presidential assassination and the development of critical Supreme Court case law. Today, we give thanks to Drs. Knowles and Hougland, as well as the the many authors who tendered manuscripts for consideration, and to the faculty who participated in reviewing and critiquing those submissions.
We encourage our membership,. faculty, students and criminal justice professionals alike, to consider writing and submitting manuscripts for future issues of “The Pursuit”. We have created a Manuscript Submission Form for this purpose. We also ask that our members interested in becoming reviewers \indicate their willingness by completing the Peer Reviewer Request Form.
