His exams are multiple choice which he reads to you the class before the exam. Everyone cheats on them and brings tape recorders. Easy grade. Great teacher if you're interesting in hearing hands on stories with policing. Not the best choice if you wanna learn text book information.

He's awesome! All of his lectures coms straight from the book, so just follow along and you'll do great. He goes off topic a lot, but his stories are so funny. I'd definitley recommend him!

This guy is the man. He worked in the NYPD pretty much all his life, and he has stories up the wazoo. He does fly through the material, but he reads the test the day before the class. I was too afraid to tape record or write it down, cause he said he'd shoot us lol, but just highlight stuff in the book and listen during class you'll be all set

Had him for Law Enforcement and Society in 2006. There was no homework besides reading the book. There were four exams and he read the exam the class before the exam date. Take him for his stories and use the book to follow along to his teaching.

Great teacher! I still remember his lessons 5 years later.I would have aced the class had I not been working 70hrs/wk and nodding off time to time.He does read the test the class before and he insists on your honesty not to record him.Seeing you are all criminal justice students and plan on great career, this is a great way to prove your integrity.

great class! The whole entire class all he talks about is his "war" stories. in the NYPD. Hes been shot a billion times and you can easily get him off topic. Tests are quite difficult, but he reads the test before hand. (BRING A RECORDER...& hide it :-) ) Easy A! Highlighting in the book is also a good idea, you dont even need to take notes.

Good guy, classes are dull but he reads the test the class before (hint hint, but a tape recorder). An easy A and he's got a lot of cool stories

Prof. Hanrahan has some amazing stories because of his time with the NYPD and Marine Corp and he shares them every class. He goes off subject alot but the stories are worth it. His tests are wicked easy since he reads them to you the day before. No homework and no writing assignment, just show up and ace the tests.

Don't bother taking notes, just follow the book. Tells some sweet stories of getting stabbed and shot..reads the test the class before, but they are somewhat hard. Found myself dosing off, Overall good class though

Hands down one of the best professors i haveever had. good sense of humor, gets every topic he wants covered, and manages to throw in a few, okay a lot of, personal experiences while he's at it. multiple choice tests which he reads off to you the class before the test. Tells everything how it is. Dont miss more than 3 classes or he WILL drop you.

Love his stories! Shot five times, slit with a can opener from shoulder to hip, hangs people outside of windows till they confess! Tests are a little difficult but his 9 degrees explains that. Take him for the sheer amusement!

His greatest story was when he told he ate monkeys and that they didn't taste like chicken.
