SOSA alum in the Policing Hall of Fame

Posted by SOSA Webteam on November 1, 2017 in News, Alumni & Friends

SOSA alum Sheri Bell (MA Sociology, 2013, focusing on Critical Health Studies), now a Crime Analyst with the Winnipeg Police Service, was inducted into the George Mason University’s Evidence-Based Policing Hall of Fame this past June (and featured in the Winnipeg Free Press). Inductees are recognized for their central role in developing and evaluating evidence-based policing practices. Sheri was honoured for her pivotal role in Winnipeg’s Smart Policing Initiative, which uses statistical data to help frontline police officers apply crime reduction strategies. Sheri was the only Canadian among eight international inductees this year at a ceremony in Virginia. Congratulations, Sheri!
