    Willard M. Oliver

    Dr. Willard Oliver joined the faculty in 2003. His areas of expertise include policing, crime policy, and the history of criminal justice. Oliver's current research in policing is focused on the phenomenon of depolicing; his research into crime policy is focused on the presidential use (and abuse) of signing statements related to crime; and his history of criminal justice research is focused primarily on the authorship of a biography titled August Vollmer: The Father of American Policing. He currently serves as the editor for the Southwestern Association of Criminal Justice's Journal of Qualitative Criminal Justice & Criminology, and he is the Academy of Criminal Justice Science's Official Historian. Oliver is both a former police officer and a retired military police officer, as well as a Desert Storm Veteran.

    Nancy E. Marion

    Dr. Marion's interests revolve around the influence of politics on the criminal justice system. This involves not only how the federal, state and local governments create criminal justice policies and agencies, but also how politics affects how criminal justice is implemented by local, state and federal agencies. She teaches courses on American Government, Politics of Criminal Justice, Policy Problems in Criminal Justice, and Political Scandals.

    She is the author of many books, including A History of Federal Crime Control Initiatives, A Primer in the Politics of Criminal Justice, and Crime and Criminal Justice in Ohio. She has also published numerous articles in various professional journals on how politics and criminal justice are related.
