Pete Kraska

EKU Professor Peter Kraska received the Academy of Criminal Justice Science’s Police Section Award for his 25 years of research and writing on police militarization. His academic work has been cited in the literature over a thousand times, and he has served on numerous state and federal level police reform commissions. When asked about receiving this prestigious award Dr. Kraska emphasized his work with EKU students: “EKU and the College of Justice and Safety have for 24 years understood and supported the important relationship between faculty developing knowledge through their research and quality teaching in the classroom. Conducting this research and attempting to impact the real world has been an invaluable resource for helping me educate our students.” Kraska added that he not only incorporates his scholarship into his teaching, but that EKU graduate and undergraduate students have also helped facilitate his own learning. “I strive to learn as much from our students as they do from me. This is what a vibrant learning community is all about.”
