Attending an online university requires students and faculty to work harder to connect.

To address some of the most important developments in law enforcement, In Public Safety has created an online magazine. The majority of these articles are written by AMU faculty members, who are both academics and practitioners. Their real-world experience, when combined with academic rigor, allows them to provide invaluable insight about what’s happening in law enforcement and the criminal justice system.
Academic culture, at its core, is based on intellectual curiosity and pursuit of the unknown. In a university setting, such curiosity is fulfilled by conducting academic research. While many people often think of faculty members as being primary researchers, it is often the contributions of students that make research projects possible. Two AMU program directors write about the various opportunities students and faculty members have to participate in research as well as the benefits of collaborative research. What research project will you take on next?
If you work or aspire to work in the public safety field, being a team player is a necessity. Whether you’re a police officer, firefighter, EMT, or emergency manager, lives depend on the strength and unity of teams. And, in today’s world of complex threats, it’s not just how well one team works together, it’s how well teams from different agencies work together in a coordinated response.
In August, In Public Safety will feature articles written by American Military University faculty members investigating the ongoing shifts in teamwork and coordination efforts among public safety agencies.
