Click image to enlarge

By Karen Guin

Residents are invited to enroll in two seminar programs offered this summer by the University of Central Florida's Department of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies and Division of Continuing Education.

"Crime in Suburban America" will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1, in Room 104 of the Classroom Building on the Orlando campus. The fee is $200.

This weeklong program will focus on the response of police officers and investigators to criminal problems encountered in suburban communities in the United States. National and regional experts will discuss topics such as gang violence, sexual predators, identity theft, drug investigations, undercover operations, suicide investigations and domestic violence.

"Officer Needs Assistance" will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Friday, August 5, in Health and Public Affairs Building I, Room 112, also on the Orlando campus. The fee is $75. 

This one-day program will focus on mental health issues facing law enforcement officers, including stress and burnout, as well as officer suicide. John Sullivan, a former police officer and federal agent with 30 years of experience, is the primary speaker.

Both programs may be taken for continuing education units or undergraduate or graduate course credit. For more information or to enroll in either seminar program, visit and select "Credit Courses."
