OCU Prepares for 15th Annual Criminal Justice Trip to London


The Department of Sociology and Criminal Justice at Oklahoma City University is taking reservations for the 15th annual trip to London in January. The London program includes field study in criminal justice for non-college students as well as students.

"The growth of the extended economic and cultural orders demands that students and professionals develop an understanding of diverse approaches to common social problems and solutions," said Dr. Howard Kurtz, OCU professor of sociology and criminal justice. "The U.S. and U.K. systems of justice are unique in that the former was in part modeled after the latter. Through comparisons of the two systems we assess the effectiveness of each and perhaps gain insight into the cultural influences at work on both continents."

Participants will visit selected sites such as Scotland Yard and meet with criminal justice experts to discuss cross-cultural comparisons between the United States and England. Those students seeking not pursuing academic credit may attend all or part of the schedule.

The group will leave the first week in January and return the following weekend. The cost of the trip is $1,995.

For more information, contact Tom Heggy, professor of criminal justice, at 521- 5456 or Kurtz at 521-5231 or at hkurtz alcohol or other contraband is not allowed, the food has to be able to be obtained locally and it cannot cost more than $15 -- even if an inmate's family wants to add to that budget.

While some order a last meal but don't eat it, Corrections Department spokesman Jerry Massie said most eat their meals a few hours before their scheduled executions. Some have eaten theirs as much as 12 hours before they are scheduled to die.

Besides their requested last meal, inmates can still eat what other prisoners are having on execution day.

"If they (inmates) want to eat when breakfast is served, when lunch and dinner is served, they can get a tray," Massie said.
