A man’s fatal shooting by a reserve deputy sheriff in Tulsa prompted the The Wall Street Journal to interview Associate Professor Ross Wolf about a national study he led on reserve deputies.

Wolf conducted the study with Associate Professor Stephen Holmes, also at UCF, and Senior Lecturer Carol Jones at the University of Gloucestershire in the United Kingdom with support from the National Sheriffs’ Association. Their study was published online April 13 in Police Practice and Research: An International Journal.
