About the Author:

John Randolph Fuller has been a professor of criminology and sociology at the University of West Georgia for over 25 years. He brings both an applied and theoretical background to his scholarship. He served as a probation and parole officer for the Florida Probation and Parole Commission in Broward County, Florida, where he managed a caseload of more than 100 felons. He also served as a criminal justice planner for the Palm Beach Metropolitan Criminal Justice Planning Unit. In this capacity, he worked with every criminal justice agency in a three-county area writing and supervising grants for the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration.

 

Dr. Fuller has received awards for both his scholarship and his teaching. The Textbook and Academic Authors Association bestowed on him its prestigious TEXTY Award for his book Criminal Justice: Mainstream and Crosscurrents. Additionally, he was given the first "Distinguished Scholar Award" by the University of West Georgia College of Arts and Sciences.

 

In 2006, the Institute of Higher Education and the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of Georgia named Dr. Fuller a Governor's Teaching Fellow. Additionally, he was chosen as Honors Professor of the Year, 2000-2001 by the students of the University of West Georgia's Honors College.

 

Recognized as an accomplished scholar, teacher, adviser, and mentor, Dr Fuller is committed to the ideals of fairness and justice for all for victims, offenders, and practitioners in the juvenile and criminal justice systems.

 

In addition to reading widely and watching too many sport programs on television, Dr. Fuller enjoys playing golf and painting, neither of which he does well.
