Alum Richard Walker Publishes Book

TU Alum Richard Walker’s book Inclusive VERITAS & Justice: Digging the Reparative Opportunity for Violent & Non-Violent Offenders was published by Outskirts Press in January. Walker graduated from Tiffin University in 2009 with a Master of Science Degree in Criminal Justice.

“I wrote the book in response to the many problems we face in the criminal justice system e.g., the exclusion of parolees in society, high prison costs, mass incarceration, and the traditional paradigm in the court system that dictates perpetrators, especially non-violent drug offenders, should receive lengthy sentences,” Walker said. “The key conclusion is that we need to be more proactive and engage parolees and probationers in helping them to successfully reintegrate into society.”

“My TU education was phenomenal,” Richard said. “All of my professors were extremely helpful and their expertise served as motivation for me to become more interested in writing a criminal justice book.”

Richard is the Criminal Justice Lecturer at Hudson County Community College in Jersey City, New Jersey. Furthermore, he has taught courses in sociology, psychology, and addiction studies. He has conducted research on areas of restorative justice, corrections, and chemical dependency and has published work in Contemporary Justice Review and The Weekly News. He currently resides in northern New Jersey.
