About the Author:

Larry J. Siegel was born in the Bronx, graduating from Christopher Columbus HS in 1964. While attending City College of New York in the 1960s, he was swept up in the social and political currents of the time. He became intrigued with the influence contemporary culture had on individual behavior: Did people shape society or did society shape people? He applied his interest in social forces and human behavior to the study of crime and justice. After graduating CCNY, he attended the newly opened program in criminal justice at the State University of New York at Albany, earning both his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees there. After completing his graduate work, Dr. Siegel began his teaching career at Northeastern University, where he was a faculty member for nine years. After leaving Northeastern, he held teaching positions at the University of Nebraska-Omaha and Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire before joining the faculty of the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell where he has remained ever since. Dr. Siegel has written extensively in the area of crime and justice, including books on juvenile law, delinquency, criminology, and criminal procedure. He is a court certified expert on police conduct and has testified in numerous legal cases. The father of four and grandfather of three, Larry Siegel and his wife Terry reside in Bedford, New Hampshire with their two cockapoos, Watson and Cody.

Brandon C. Welsh was born in Canada. He received his undergraduate and M.A. degrees at the University of Ottawa and his Ph.D. from Cambridge University in England. He is currently an associate professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell. He teaches graduate and undergraduate courses on crime prevention, juvenile delinquency, policing, and international criminology. His research interests focus on the prevention of crime and delinquency and the economic analysis of crime prevention programs. Dr. Welsh has published extensively in these areas and is the author or editor of five books.

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Joseph J. Senna graduated from Brooklyn College, Fordham University Graduate School Service, and Suffolk University Law School. Dr. Senna spent over fourteen years teaching law and justice courses at Northeastern University. In addition, he has served as an Assistant District Attorney, Director of Harvard Law School Prosecutorial Program, and consultant to numerous criminal justice organizations. His academic specialties include the areas of Criminal Law, Constitutional Due Process, Criminal Justice, and Juvenile Law. Dr. Senna lives with his wife and sons outside of Boston.
