Sheriff Visits Criminal Justice Classroom

By: Mary Ann Cozza

Students in Lecturer Frank Rodriguez’s Criminology class were treated to a special guest lecture on Monday, July 18, by Harris County Sheriff Adrian Garcia.

Garcia gave a presentation to students on victimology and victims in Harris County.

According to Rodriquez, it was a great opportunity for the students to ask questions and learn valuable information from a highly respected and seasoned criminal justice figure in the community.

Elected in 2009, Sheriff Garcia heads the largest sheriff’s office in Texas and the third largest in the United States. For more information about Sheriff Garcia, read his bio here.
