Photo of Lee Ann SlocumLee Slocum received her Ph.D. in Criminology and Criminal Justice from the University of Maryland, College Park in 2007. Her research interests include police-citizen relations, developmental criminology, and how people’s environment shapes their behavior. Lee’s recent research explores the effects of being stopped or arrested by the police on youth’s involvement in delinquency and orientation toward the law and how prior experiences with law enforcement influence victims’ willingness to report crime.  She is also part of the UMSL Comprehensive Safe Schools Initiative, a longitudinal study on school safety.
