After 18 years of distinguished service at Northeastern, Professor Jack R. Greene retired on July 1, 2017.  Professor Greene served as the Dean of the College of Criminal Justice between 1999 and 2008 and then as the Vice Provost for Experiential Learning before returning to our faculty to teach and continue his very active research agenda.  Greene is also one of our most distinguished alumni as he received his BS in Criminal Justice from the College of Criminal Justice in 1973.  As his students and colleagues well know, Greene is a premier policing scholar with expertise in comparative policing models, police organizational behavior, police integrity, terrorism, and homeland security.  Over the course of his career, Greene collaborated with numerous police departments, including the Philadelphia Police Department, the Los Angeles Police Department and Boston Police Department, and was a key consultant on security issues for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia and the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, Utah.  He will continue to be involved with the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice as Professor Emeritus.  The School will be celebrating his career on October 27, 2017.  Information on this event is available here.
