LEWISTON — Maine State Police Sergeant Jonathan Shapiro will be the first speaker for USM LAC’s Alumni Lecture Series, at noon Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 51 Westminster St., room 170.

His lecture will highlight the program “Improved Police Response to Juveniles in Crisis,” which he developed for the Maine State Police as part of his capstone project in the Master’s in Leadership Studies program at USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College. Shapiro is a member of Troop A in York County.

Shapiro will give an overview of the program and the four years of data collected since its inception. He will also speak about the Juvenile Community Review Board he recently developed in Old Orchard Beach.

The USM LAC Alumni Lecture Series invites USM LAC alumni to return to campus and speak to how their degree program has helped them in their chosen careers. All lectures are free, and current members of the USM community as well as the general public are invited to attend these short talks and hear directly from alumni applying their USM education in their workplace or organizations as well as to the wider world.
