Mission Statement


Terence Lynn, Senior Director

The Office of Professional Studies at John Jay College of Criminal Justice was established to provide professional development education and training to Public Safety, Public Service, Social Justice, and Criminal Justice agencies and organizations.  In addition, robust non-credit certificates enhance the professional qualifications of practitioners across a broad spectrum of disciplines. The goal is to deliver the highest quality services in accordance with the overall mission of John Jay College of Criminal Justice.  In addition to providing subject matter that comply with state certification rules and industry standards, where applicable, Professional Studies strives to incorporate in its programs core learning skills that not only enable training participants to perform their duties as effective and efficient public safety professionals, but also as good citizens in a diverse, complex, and evolving society.

At the core of our programs are our faculty, scholars and instructors who are committed to innovative analysis, interdisciplinary approaches and global perspectives to further the discourse on the complex issues surrounding crime, justice and public safety in a free society.  By bringing together John Jay’s distinguished and diverse academic community with working professionals, Professional Studies serves as a catalyst for new ideas and cutting-edge practices that help academics, policy makers and practitioners serve the public now and in the future.
