Criminologist's Work Earns Multiple Accolades
UT Dallas News Center
Dr. Alex Piquero has been named an American Society of Criminology Fellow, the second such honor that the UT Dallas professor of criminology has received this year.
 
Earlier this year, Piquero was elected Fellow of the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences in Toronto. He is one of five criminologists in the world – and the youngest – to receive the Fellow designation in both criminology professional societies.
 
In addition, in January the Journal of Criminal Justice Education ranked Piquero as the No. 1 criminologist in the world in terms of publications in elite criminology journals, a distinction he has had since 1996.
 
Piquero is one of four criminologists this year to earn the American Society of Criminology (ASC) Fellow distinction, awarded to people who have made a scholarly contribution to the intellectual life of the discipline. A Fellow also must have made a significant contribution to the field through the career development of other criminologists and/or through ASC organizational activities.

U.S. Attorney General Invites Professor to Give Testimony
UT Dallas News Center
UT Dallas criminologist  Dr. Alex Piquero will offer testimony on the cost and benefits of crime prevention during an April 24 hearing led by the U.S. Attorney General’s Task Force on Children Exposed to Violence.
 
Piquero, an Ashbel Smith Professor of criminology in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, received an invitation to speak at Wayne State University in Detroit, Mich., where task force members ranging from practitioners to family advocates will hear from experts about the problems associated with children’s exposure to violence in the United States, both as victims and as witnesses.
 
Piquero said he is honored to speak at the forum, which will be the task force’s final hearing.
