Critical Thinking and Leadership – Judge Hal Campbell, Ph.D.
This three part series addressing the subjects of critical thinking, multidimensional reasoning, logic, and leadership within the law and justice professions was prepared by the author as a publication for LinkedIn. The content of these articles are particularly useful for executive leaders of police organizations in defining public policy, focusing on the development of a transparent enforcement strategy, and defending executive decisions regarding the need, intent, and purpose of such actions.

Last Chance Program – Judge Hal Campbell, Ph.D.
This lecture deals with a seldom invoked judicial option, which is specifically designed to enhance the prerogatives of the lower courts in extending their reach beyond the maximum allowable sentence under the law and to provide a mechanism whereby the court can impose stringent sentencing conditions that address the multivariate nature of an offender’s criminality. This brief presentation explains the philosophy behind the use of deferred imposition of sentence, along with a multivariate sentencing and release strategy that seeks to force behavior modification and treatment as part of the sentencing conditions that are invoked by the court. Last Chance sends a clear message to a potentially salvageable offender and affords a reasoned program of addressing an offender’s behavior to eliminate certain factors that result in temptations and choices that have brought the accused to the attention of the justice system. This project holds tremendous nationwide potential as a community based sentencing alternative to demonstrate compassionate justice, but with teeth.

Crime Forecasting and Enforcement Effectiveness – Judge Hal Campbell, Ph.D.
This brief seminar was developed to assist law enforcement leaders with planning and evaluating directed patrol and strategic enforcement operations. The seminar covers the element of correlation analysis, linear regression based crime forecasting, time-series crime rate projections, and determinations of crime prevention effectiveness and cost-benefit analysis. Judge Campbell can be contacted directly at hal.campbell@justiceacademy.org.

Logic Models in Support of Homeland Security Strategy Development – Judge Hal Campbell, Ph.D.
The article listed below was originally published in the Journal of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and deals with the subject of homeland security strategy development. The methodology presented within this writing addresses the very complex aspects of multivariate-multidirectional strategy planning using Discriminant Function Analysis for either homeland security strategy or domestic law enforcement operations. Thinking in multiple directions is the cornerstone of anticipating potential threats, deliberation of the controllable factors associated with such threats, and mitigating prospective vulnerabilities by influence over those factors we control. Clearly most people within this professional arena do not build such complex models in support of their efforts, but this article does open the possibilities for such in depth deliberation and encourages us all to think in a multivariate-multidirectional frame of reference in order to game such scenarios when the opportunities exist. Should you have any questions concerning this article or the strategy approaches highlighted herein, please feel free to contact me at director@justiceacademy.org.

Analysis of Prisoner Escape Potential, Hal Campbell, Ph.D. – 1983
Submitted in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the doctoral degree in criminal justice with emphasis and specialization in public law, criminal justice, mathematics and statistics, and criminology at Claremont Graduate University, 1983. This dissertation was authored in response to the increasing frequency of prisoner escapes from minimum security facilities managed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The study was undertaken at the request of Sheriff Peter J. Pitchess. It was created using a combination of empirical methods, culminating in the creation of a Discriminant Function Equation to provide a predictive formula that could be used as a classification mechanism for new prisoners in order to discern their probability of escape potential and their subsequent housing classification predicated upon the risk they posed to the community.

Geographic Information Systems Overview – Judge Hal Campbell, Ph.D.
Geographic Information Systems are used to support a plethora of agency functions and operations nowadays. The technique can be a bit mysterious for those who are not familiar with computer science and information systems but the utility of such systems is without question. This presentation provides a comprehensive look at the fundamental aspects of GIS and explains the intricacies of such systems. Although this series is not narrated (yet) it does provide the transcript of his lectures on the subject and is quite valuable to those just learning how to use GIS environments. Professor Campbell’s professional experience includes over ten years of service with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department as Deputy Sheriff, Head Statistical Analyst, and Law Enforcement Planning Coordinator. From 1989 to 2009 he served as professor and department chair with the California State University. His most recent association was in Richland County, Montana where he served as the Sub-Judge of the Justice and City Courts. Judge Campbell can be reached at hal.campbell@justiceacademy.org
