Retired Ferris Professor Dr. Bob Parsons Offers Expertise In Mount Pleasant Area

Retired Ferris State University professor of criminal justice Dr. Robert Parsons was able to offer his expertise on local law enforcement (specifically about whether there was a need for an increased presence as far as law enforcement is concerned) to Union Township officials.

Here is an excerpt from the story published in the Morning Sun newspaper of Mount Pleasant:
Representatives from Central Michigan University, the city of Mt. Pleasant, and Isabella County came to Wednesday's meeting to hear the results from Parsons and Associates.

In March, Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski approached the township with a proposal to add two sheriff' deputies, who would be dedicated to Union Township through the COPS Hiring Recovery Program grant, part of President Barack Obama's stimulus package of $1 billion set aside for law enforcement.

"Our initial project goals were to look at a call for services, and to evaluate both proposals," said Dr. Bob Parsons, retired professor of criminal justice from Ferris State University. "Our original goals changed because Isabella County and Mt. Pleasant Department of Public Safety were not able to get the COPS grant."
