Principal Lecturer, Government, History & Criminal Justice
As a 27-year veteran of the Virginia State Police, Stephen Webb has served on several work-related committees and completed training for school crisis, incident response, crisis management, emergency management, and numerous courses related to effective law enforcement operations and management.
He is an active member of Tucker Swamp Baptist Church in Zuni, Virginia, and has served in a variety of positions including deacon, treasurer, personnel committee, stewardship committee, personnel search committee and Sunday school teacher. He also has volunteered for Isle of Wight Academy school functions, including the school crisis review committee.
“My pedagogical approach strives to engage students in the process of learning through varied methods of effective delivery, while integrating a Christian worldview and perspective. Criminal justice incorporates psychology, sociology, and other academic disciplines and as a practitioner in the criminal justice community, the 27 years of sworn law experience I possess provide real-world applications and insights to the theoretical principles found in criminal justice textbooks,” says Webb.
His research interests include school resource officers, impact of media on law enforcement and women in policing. He enjoys sports, hunting, bike riding and gardening. He is married and has three children. As a family, they have participated together in numerous communities activities in Suffolk, Smithfield and Isle of Wight County.
