Abstract: Police across the world now routinely carry firearms for general duties. In most western nations, it is now the norm. This represents a significant change in practice over the last forty years. The reasons vary from jurisdiction to jurisdiction, but the legitimacy of the modern practice is never questioned. The policy of routinely arming police should be, I argue, up for renewed debate, given the number of times that firearms are resorted to by police today with fatal consequences, and the number of cases when officers use their own weapons to end their lives. This presentation will review current themes and trends regarding the routine deployment firearms in general patrol activities. Are we safer if police are routinely armed? Are police safer? What does the evidence tell us?

"Why Communication is Crucial: Meta-Analysis of the Relationship between Safer Sexual Communication and Condom Use" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, Sheraton New York, New York City, NY, Online <PDF>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p11556_index.html>

Abstract: The purpose of this study was to quantitatively synthesize the growing literature on the relationship between safer sexual communication (SSC) among sexual partners and condom use, and to systematically examine a number of conceptual and methodological moderators of this relationship. Data from 53 articles published in 27 journals met criteria for the study. Fifty-five independent effect sizes coded from samples totaling N=18,529 were meta-analyzed. Results indicated that the mean sample-size weighted effect size of the SSC-condom use relation was r=.22. A number of conceptual variables moderated this relationship, while methodological moderators tended to be unrelated to effect size. Implications for the future study of safer sexual communication as well as the importance of emphasizing communication skills in HIV preventive interventions are discussed.

"The Role of the “Justice Intermediary”: Challenges and Successes Implementing the Safer Return Demonstration Project" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ASC Annual Meeting, San Francisco Marriott, San Francisco, California, <Not Available>. 2019-09-18 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p430300_index.html>

Abstract: The Safer Return Demonstration Project was jointly developed by the Urban Institute and the Safer Foundation based on best and promising practices in the field of prisoner reentry. The Safer Foundation, acting as the “justice intermediary”, is implementing the demonstration in one high-density prisoner reentry community, East Garfield Park (Chicago, IL). The demonstration offers participants a host of services pre- and post-release, including exit orientations in prison, mentoring, job training, and family-inclusive case management. The Urban Institute is evaluating the project through a process, impact and cost analysis, using multiple methods. As part of the process evaluation, the Urban Institute has conducted a series of stakeholder interviews, field observations, focus groups, and reviews of training materials, administrative and programmatic documents. This paper will discuss the Safer Return model and the Safer Foundation’s role as the justice intermediary. As part of this discussion, the presentation will focus on the findings from the Urban Institute’s process evaluation, including the successes and challenges the Safer Foundation has experienced implementing the Safer Return project and acting as the justice intermediary. Lessons learned for researchers, practitioners, and policy makers interested in comprehensive, community-based reentry initiatives will also be discussed.

Abstract: Recent research on college dating relationships indicates that a variety of casual sex relationships are experienced by today’s generation of students; including hanging out, hooking up (Grello, Welsh, & Harper, 2006; Paul & Hayes, 2002) friends with benefits (Bisson & Levine, 2006; Hughes, Morrison, & Asada, 2005; Mongeau, Ramirez & Vorrell, 2003), and more traditional dating relationships. These relationships often are facilitated by social networking sites (i.e., Facebook), occur in settings that are influenced by alcohol consumption, and in a culture where sexually transmitted diseases are considered a major challenge to public health (CDC, 2007). In the past, public health messages advocated the importance of “getting to know your partner” conversations as a risk reduction strategy (Welch Clline, Johnson, and Freeman, 1992). This article explores the types of safer sex conversations that college students report occurring in today’s transient relationships. Specifically, the relationships between sexual attitudes, conversations about safer sex, relationship type (i.e., hanging out, hooking up, one night stands, friends with benefits, etc.) and likelihood of engaging in safer sex are investigated. Three hundred and thirty three undergraduates from a large Midwestern University completed an online self-report survey describing their sexual attitudes, experiences with casual sex relationships, and safer sex conversations. Recommendations and implications for future research targeted at understanding the nuances of casual sex relationships and safer sex conversations are discussed.
