Drs. Christopher Totten and Sutham Cobkit received a certificate for CHSS Foundation Prize for Publication for 2013

Drs. Christopher Totten and Sutham Cobkit have each been awarded a certificate for CHSS Foundation Prize for Publication for 2013. The certificates were awarded for their publication of an article in the New Criminal Law Review. The article, entitled "The Knock and Announce Rule and Police Searches after Hudson v. Michigan: Can Alternative Deterrents Effectively Replace Exclusion for Rule Violations?", was published following a survey study by the authors of police chiefs in large U.S cities regarding the chiefs' perceptions of the exclusionary rule and alternatives to exclusion (e.g., internal police discipline, training, education and citizen review boards), to deter police knock and announce violations. The article citation is: Totten, C.D. & Cobkit (Cheurprakobkit), S. (2012). The knock and announce rule and police searches after Hudson v. Michigan: Can alternative deterrents effectively replace exclusion for rule violations? New Criminal Law Review, 15, 414–457. The Kennesaw State University Foundation has established The Foundation Prize for Publication to acknowledge high quality publications by Kennesaw State University faculty, and to encourage, support, and recognize original scholarship among faculty.
