WRITTEN BY DR. ANDREW KARMEN

PROFESSOR OF SOCIOLOGY

JOHN JAY COLLEGE OF CRIMINAL JUSTICE

CITY UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK

     Andrew Karmen has been a professor in the Sociology Department at John Jay College of Criminal Justice since 1978.
     He has taught courses on a wide range of subjects including general sociology, criminal justice, criminology, crime and justice in New York City, drug abuse, delinquency, social problems, race relations, research methods, statistics, and victimology. He has served as the coordinator of both the criminology and criminal justice undergraduate majors, and as the co-director of the master’s program in criminal justice.
     Dr. Karmen has written journal articles and chapters in books on a number of subjects, including drug abuse, police use of deadly force, auto theft, providing defense attorneys to indigents, victims’ rights, the victimization of women, and predictions about the plight of crime victims in the future. His investigation of why crime rates rise and fall, NEW YORK MURDER MYSTERY: THE TRUE STORY BEHIND THE CRIME CRASH OF THE 1990s, (NYU Press, paperback edition 2006) unearths statistical evidence that casts doubt on most of the widely held beliefs about the reasons for the dramatic improvement in public safety in New York City.
