Lethal Violence Research by a Practitioner

To honor the service achievements of Carolyn Rebecca Block, as well as her role as co-founder of the Homicide Research Working Group, the membership has established a $500 award for outstanding service as a practitioner, with a focus on homicide and/or lethal violence. An additional $500 is provided to help cover expenses for the presentation at the HRWG meeting.

  3. The candidate agrees to present or describe their work at a meeting of the Homicide Research Working Group.
