Thomas J. Carey, Ed.D., a specialist professor in the Department of Criminal Justice, has published “COVID-19 Pandemic: Reflections of Monmouth University’s Department of Criminal Justice,” in the volume 10, No. 15 edition of the “Journal of Security, Intelligence, and Resilience Education,” a peer-reviewed online journal.

Carey also examines how instructors in the Department of Criminal Justice responded to the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in May and the mass protests and civil disorder that followed.
