UALR Department of Criminal Justace Survey
The Department of Criminal Justice at the University of Arkansas in Little Rock is doing a survey on Sex Offenders and how the laws effect them. The survey will be 100% confidential and can either be done in person at UALR or over the phone. They will like to interview anyone that is currently on the sex offender registry or significant others and/or children who are also impacted by the sex offender laws. Execuctive Director Lora Morgan has been in contact with Dr. ten Bensel and highly recomends everyone participate. With our help she will be able to help us. You may read more about the survey here. You may contact Dr. ten Bensel at 501-683-7665 or email@example.com.
Our Executive Director, Lora Morgan, has been making multiple trips a week to the state capital in order to observe committee meetings. She confirms what local news coverage has reported; the Department of Corrections is having to answer lots of questions from the legislators. These hearings have largely focused on problems within the Department's operations, including the parole process. Lora says she has learned a lot and that these trips add to what she has learned about Arkansas government and the legislature.
In addition, she has continued to make new contacts with department personnel and legislators, while renewing contacts with others. Due to the time and cost involved with these many trips to the capital, Lora regrets that at this time ATAT will not be able to send out its monthly newsletter or have a monthly meeting. It came down to a choice, one or the other; send out the newsletter/meeting or make the trip to Little Rock? At this time Lora feels it is more important to make the trips to Little Rock. ATAT will send out emails to keep everyone informed. When ATAT receives more funds the newsletter will start back up. Until then, the newsletter and monthly meetings are both canceled until further notice.
Our latest newsletter is the August Newsletter.
