Wemette & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary: Public safety personnel, including police officers, are more likely to encounter psychologically traumatic events on the job, leading to depression, anxiety, burnout, and PTSD (Arbleet al., 2017; Di Nota et al., 2021). In addition to the physically demanding nature of their work, when asked to do what is right, police officers may face moral issues resulting in moral distress or moral injury (Papazoglouet al., 2020).  Because burnout, moral injury, and PTSD may appear similar and have severe consequences, it is critical to understand the relationship between the...

Wemette & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Cultural differences between police officers and the communities in which they serve and protect are increasingly receiving more scrutiny. Both uniformed officers and police leadership have identified cultural awareness and related available training as barriers to serving their communities (Fletcher et al., 2019: Holohan, 2019). Cultural competence is defined by the achievement of skills, attitudes, values, and beliefs which are apparent in individuals and organizations to help navigate unique characteristics among diverse populations.  Cultural humility places more emphasis on attitudes and approaches of openness, self-reflection, mutual understanding, and...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   Police contacts with persons with severe mental illness (SMI) have been increasing since the deinstitutionalization movement (Hollander et al., 2012); some of these contacts are fatal (DeGueet al., 2016).  •Between 7% to 31% of all police contacts in North America are with people with SMI (Blaiset al., 2020; Hollander et al., 2012; Livingston, 2016; Shapiro et al., 2015). •20% to 50% of fatalities by police involved a person with SMI (DeGueet al., 2016).  •Thus, researchers have been investigating ways to improve police contacts with individualswith SMI, including use...

Jacquin, Ph.D.  Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Child witnesses are a crucial part of the criminal justice system.  To ensure a successful prosecution, story-grammar details are necessary in child witness testimonies (Feltiset al., 2010).  Story-grammar details include the setting, initiating event, internal response, plan, attempt, direct consequence, and resolution of an event (Feltiset al., 2010). Research demonstrated a significant proportion of current police questioning techniques included methods that are shown not to be the best at eliciting story-grammar details (Aldridge & Cameron, 1999; Cederborget al., 2000; Cederborg, 2004; Childs & Walsh, 2018; Guadagno &...

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Police officers are appointed to assist and protect the communities in which they serve. In doing this, police focus primarily on performance measures that are law-enforcement agency-oriented (Sparrow, 2015). Metrics that focus solely on agency goals may fail to consider the human costs involved in achieving these goals, specifically within Black communities.    [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1591214003976{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Presented by  Melissa Micka, M.S., & Kristine M.

Law, B.A. & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  Feminist activists aspire to end intimate partner violence (IPV), of which women were and disproportionately remain victims (Stark, 2012). To realize this goal, policing emphasized individual incidents of dominance, force, and threats, using levels of physical assault to determine severity (Stark, 2012). Currently, responses to IPV in most countries and the U.S. are structured on what Stark (2007) refers to as the violent incident model (VIM). The VIM led to the U.S. Violence Against Women Act (1994) to protect victims and mitigate severe and...

Previous research shows that individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) have a higher rate of false confessions when compared to other societal groups (Frumkinet al., 2012; Schatz, 2018).    [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1591214003976{margin-bottom: 20px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]Presented by Cassidy C.

Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:   It has long been established that eyewitness testimony is fraught with potential sources of error (Steblayet al., 2003; Steblayet al., 2011). •Contrary to the perception of law enforcement and jurors alike, confidence does not correlate with accuracy (Potter & Brewer, 1999). Nevertheless, beliefs about the relationship between confidence and accuracy of identifications can greatly influence juror decisions (Beaudry, 2015) and lead to injustice (Innocence Project, 2018). •Research has shown a number of factors that inflate eyewitness confidence, such as receiving feedback during the identification process, and delaying...

Cox, M.S., & Kristine M. Jacquin, Ph.D. Original Publication Site & Date: American College of Forensic Psychology 2022 Summary:  First responders encounter incidents that much of the public will never see.  These first responders (police, fire, EMS, corrections, dispatch) experience these situations consistently and frequently throughout their careers and often live their lives as if nothing unusual has occurred.  Occurrences of mass trauma or destruction that the responders encounter may be referred to as critical incidents.  With first responders regularly encountering such situations, we must ensure they are receiving appropriate care so they remain mentally strong.  One resource to assist in after care...
