This was a really interesting introductory course for students that like investigations. The class was easily to follow. Two short assignments per week. Professor is easy to contact with questions or problems. Definitely recommend this one

Excellent course. Easy to follow. One question and one discussion a week. Put your work in on time or loose points. I enjoyed it and learned a lot.

I would recommend this class if you really want to learn. The professor challenges you critical thinking skills in a positive way. Assignments are not hard, but don't think you can just give a simple answer and receive an A. You have to elaborate and explain you point of view with facts to support it.

Pollini is an excellent professor. I learned so much from his class. He has extensive NYPD experience. The class was easy, just a midterm, final, and two small writing assignments. However, he is a VERY tough grader. He gave me a B+, and I am a straight A student. I think I gave him A level work too. He expects way too much. Great guy, GPA killer!!

EXCELLENT COURSE-This was a senior level seminar and it was well organized and easy to follow. Instructor was helpful and available anytime. Submitting assignments on time was important or you would loose credit. It was my first online course and would take more but graduating.

Wouldn't recommend this professor online. I'm taking an elective class that's suppose to be more lenient;yet he is excessive and over the top in his request for the Discussion postings and assignments, which are basically the same topic; making hard to make two different post.

Pollini is the best teacher. He has a lot of experience and teaches using examples from his policing days. He is also very helpful, not just in the classroom, but is a good guy to go to for help with life and internships.

This guy is awesome. My favorite professor so far at John Jay. Very intelligent and experienced in police work. His stories are fascinating and his insight makes the class always interesting. Exams are very reasonable if you pay attention and take notes. It's hard to not be motivated by his class. You'll want to go and learn. A MUST TAKE
