Service to the profession includes a term as a member of the U.S. Office of Justice Programs Science Advisory Board, several editorial boards of journals such as Women & Criminal Justice and Crime & Delinquency, a Trustee-at-Large to the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, and President of the Southwest Association of Criminal Justice Educators. Pollock has published more than 25 books in the areas of ethics, female criminality, corrections, and law. She has received numerous awards, including the Outstanding Alumni Award of SUNY-Albany, the Bruce Smith Sr. Award from the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS), and the Presidential Seminar Award from Texas State University, and, in 2015, she was awarded the ACJS Academy Fellow Award for distinguished teaching and scholarly achievement and the Coramae Richey Mann Award for contributions to the field in the area of gender and minority studies.


In the highly readable Eleventh Edition, Pollock enhances student knowledge and learning with pedagogical tools that will engage students in legal issues and improve their understanding of the criminal law. The book incorporates cases, summaries, and examples that encourage active learning. It is highly relevant and current. The new edition enables students to relate cases to their future professional lives.
