Much gratitude to Officer Joey Valdez, GC 2011, for spending time with Dr. McKenzie’s Psychology and the Law class in September.  Officer Valdez provided a multi-media presentation regarding the breadth of responsibilities involved in officers’ careers.  He covered topics such as intoxication states, threat levels, and vehicle pursuits.  The most dramatic and memorable moment was when he showed footage from an officer’s camera and slowly walked us through the chain of events contained within and the progression of red flags evident in the “routine” traffic stop.
