Campus Safety Magazine is pleased to announce that one of its frequent contributors, Lt. John M. Weinstein of Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA), has won two prestigious writing awards from the Public Safety Writers Association.
How to Improve Situational Awareness on Campus won first prize in the Non-Fiction Creative-Technical Published category, while Dealing with Difficult People: 10 Tips for Diffusing Toxic Situations came in third place in that same category.
“It’s great to see that others have discovered what we at Campus Safety magazine have known all along: that when it comes to campus public safety, Lt. Weinstein not only knows his stuff but does a great job of communicating that know-how in a clear, concise, yet eloquent way. Congratulations John,we are so proud of you!” says Robin Hattersley Gray, executive editor for Campus Safety magazine.
Both of Weinstein’s winning articles ran in the print and online versions of the magazine. How to Improve Situational Awareness on Campus describes how campus police can encourage students, faculty and staff to take responsibility for their own safety. Dealing With Difficult People provides tips on how campus police and security officers can improve interactions with members of their campus community and keep arrests or citations from escalating into violence.

The organization is also open to illustrators, photographers, cartoonists, editors and publishers. Both published and non-published writers are welcome.

Weinstein will be presenting at the Campus Safety Conference in Los Angeles, July 31-Aug. 1.
