When Frederick H. Bealefeld III tells his future students at Stevenson University about criminal justice, they’ll have a hard time pretending he doesn’t know what he’s talking about: the university’s newest professor was until recently Baltimore City’s top cop.
Stevenson’s criminal justice program began just a couple years ago; hiring Bealefeld is a clear sign that the university plans on investing in the program. The former commissioner (who retired this year) will help the school develop a center for criminal justice.
Bealefeld comes at university education from a different direction than most professors: he dropped out of community college before enlisting with the police department. While there, he developed education programs for police officers and helped create a leadership program through the University of Maryland University College.
We imagine that his students will have very low levels of cheating and other misbehavior; who wants to get on the police commissioner’s wrong side?
