Christine Hess Orthmann holds an M.S. in Oceanography and Coastal Zone Management from Nova Southeastern University, having completed her thesis on a topic relevant to environmental crime, and is currently working toward a Master of Science in Criminal Justice through the University of Cincinnati. She is a reserve officer with the Rosemount (Minnesota) Police Department.

K�ren Matison Hess, PhD., (d. 2010) wrote extensively in law enforcement and criminal justice, gaining a respected reputation for the consistent pedagogical style around which she structured each textbook.
