Dr. Dennis W. Bowman, a professor in Western Illinois University’s reputed School of Law Enforcement and Justice Administration (LEJA), served for more than 29 years as a state law enforcement officer and commander in the Illinois State Police. These days, he helps prepare WIU LEJA students/future law enforcement officials for their careers in the wide array of criminal justice occupations.

Dr. Bowman also spends time traveling the globe, lecturing in China, Kazakhstan, Russia, and Afghanistan. In a recent State Journal-Register article, “Life as college professor not always placid,” Dave Bakke notes, as a result of Dr. Bowman’s travels, the School of LEJA “has made connections with law enforcement organizations in each of the countries where [he] has traveled.”

Read more about Dr. Bowman’s work across the globe—which includes treks to: Russia to speak about immigration policy; China, where he spoke to the Zheijang Police College in Hangzhou about police and media relations; and Kazakhstan to attend a meeting of the Central Asian Regional Intelligence Coordinating Committee, where he discussed “leadership, critical incident management, and interaction with the news media”—at www.sj-r.com/top-stories/x1622886203/Dave-Bakke-Life-as-college-professor-not-always-placid.
