Department of Justice Honors Susan Herman

For more than 30 years, Professor of Criminal Justice and Security Susan Herman has been an advocate of victim’s rights. Her hard work and commitment were recognized when, this year, she was awarded the prestigious Department of Justice’s National Crime Victim Service Award. U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder presented the award on April 24 in Washington, D.C.

This award honors extraordinary individuals and programs that provide services to victims of crime.  As the former Executive Director of the National Center for Victims of Crime, Herman demonstrated significant leadership and vision through the development of numerous innovative programs including the Stalking Resource Center and Teen Victim Project.

Herman was Pace University’s 2013 convocation speaker where she addressed ideas of justice.
