The editorial board of Policing: An International Journal of Police Strategies & Management has selected a research project conducted by an FSU father-son team as one of the most impressive scholarly studies it published during 2012.

The article, written by William M. Doerner and William G. Doerner, examines the impact of professional accreditation on clearance rates in Florida police agencies over the 1997‒2006 period.

The junior Doerner was awarded the Ph.D. from the FSU Department of Economics in August, 2012.  He has since taken a position as an economist with a federal regulatory body, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, in Washington, DC.

The senior Doerner has been a member of the College of Criminology and Criminal Justice faculty since 1977.  Among his many accomplishments, the senior Doerner is a past editor of the American Journal of Criminal Justice, has been recognized by the Southern Criminal Justice Association as its Criminal Justice Educator of the Year, and is the 2009 recipient of a national award from the American Society of Victimology.
