THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY’s Division of Experimental Criminology is honoring WBEB/PHILADELPHIA owner JERRY LEE with the creation of a JERRY LEE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD, which will be given each year to a criminologist whose career contributions have significantly advanced evidenced based policy in the field of criminology. The award is a testament to LEE’s commitment to criminology and the impact his efforts have had on research in the field.
"I am extremely proud of the advancements that I have been part of in the field of criminology and truly humbled to have this award named in my honor," said LEE. "Crime fighting has been a passion of mine for a long time but I’m not sure I could have ever imagined what has been accomplished in the field over the last decade. I only hope this award helps recognize the work of the most deserving criminologists and helps spur greater advancements in the field."
The first winner of the JERRY LEE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD is DAVID FARRINGTON, Professor of Psychological Criminology at the INSTITUTE OF CRIMINOLOGY, CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY. Nominations are now being accepted for the 2011 JERRY LEE LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD; please contact DAVID WEISBURD at firstname.lastname@example.org.
