Host Gina Logue’s interview with Dr. Ben Stickle, an assistant professor in MTSU’s Department of Criminal Justice Administration, firest aired Sept. 10 on WMOT-FM Roots Radio 89.5 and online at You can hear their conversation above.

Stickle participated in a panel presentation this past spring at the United Nations headquarters in New York City on the “Role of Law Enforcement for Women’s Access to Social Protection Services.”

The event was the 63rd session on the Commission on the Status of Women, which was held March 11-22.

One of the contributions Stickle made to the conversation was to remind his fellow panelists that ways of dealing with domestic violence problems in large metropolitan areas might not necessarily work in small towns.

“In some of the discussions, they were talking about how they would give access to a voucher system for the public transportation for someone to try and leave a situation,” Stickle said.

“That isn’t really possible in some of the places that I’ve had experience working.”
