Issues and challenges facing local police the topic of April 19 forum

4/16/2010 —
The free public “CSI: Fayette County” forum series continues Monday, April 19, from 6-8 p.m. at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus in Swimmer Hall in the Williams Building. The evening’s topic will be a discussion of the issues and challenges local police forces have to contend with.

Panelists at the April 19 forum include Brownsville police Chief Stanley Jablonsky, Connellsville police Chief Ed McSheffery, Masontown police Chief Joe Ryan, Uniontown police Chief Jason A. Cox, and Penn State Administration of Justice Professor Dr. Richard Ball. The police chiefs will talk about the issues and challenges they face as local law enforcement officers. Dr. Ball also will speak on the subject, but add perspective as it relates to national studies on crime. As Dr. Ball observes, “Many of the national studies done on crime deal with large cities, but crime isn't limited to large metropolitan areas. Crime happens in rural America, too. However, the crime issues are different.”

This is the third in the ongoing series of CSI: Fayette County forums. Penn State Fayette partnered with the Herald-Standard to present the “Crime Subjects Investigated” forums to offer an opportunity for area residents to learn about and discuss topics of interest related to local crime and law enforcement. No reservations are required.
