Dr. Roger Neal McIntyre, Jr.
I received my Doctoral Degree in Public Administration with a minor in Sociology from Valdosta State University in 2011. I joined the VSU faculty in August 2012. Prior to that, I ran a successful criminal justice program at a local community college for several years. I have served in the capacity of detention officer and police officer at the local law enforcement level with a vast majority of my experience coming from the position of probation officer with the Georgia Department of Corrections. My probation caseload consisted of violent, sexual, and substance abusing offenders. The highlight of my law enforcement career was to be involved in the development of a very successful day reporting center here in South Georgia that serves chronic substance abusing offenders.
My research interests generally involve program evaluations, policy analysis, and alternative sanctions for sexual and substance abusing offenders. I’m also interested in matters of police-community relations and the application of justice in rural settings.
When I’m not teaching, I like to spend time with my wife and two daughters. In my elective time, I can normally be found outdoors on the family farm where I operate a herd of registered Angus cattle.
