****For Immediate Release****

2019 is already moving quickly. So much work to do! I am humbled to inform you that Blue Magazine is tremendously successful—beyond what I would have thought was possible a decade ago when I started this publication. I always knew there was potential and to see this level of success makes me proud.  We have grown from a small local publication here in New Jersey to a powerful voice on the national law enforcement scene. Our work has helped fight against negative law enforcement narratives, and to advocate for our profession on the national stage.  Every day, the publication is expanding and growing stronger. We are leading the charge to address Blue Suicide and much more.

Much of this success is the result of the hard work of our team led by our Managing Editor Dr. George Beck.  Dr. Beck’s passion, intellect and abilities have continually impressed me. Therefore, I am honored to announce that Dr. Beck will be the new Editor-In-Chief of Blue Magazine effective immediately. Dr. Beck came to the magazine five years ago and has led every phase of production like no other editor in the law enforcement profession. His work on the local and national level is unmatched. He is the best in the business. There is no one more capable and deserving to lead this publication as Editor-In-Chief.

Dr. Beck holds a Ph.D. in History & Culture from Drew University, a master’s degree in Criminal Justice from Boston University, master’s degree in Administrative Science from Fairleigh Dickinson University, a bachelor’s degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and an associate’s degree in Criminal Justice from Bergen Community College.  He is an active duty police sergeant and adjunct professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University and College of Saint Elizabeth. He is the author of several books, including “The Killer Among Us”—a historical fiction book set in 1930s New Jersey.

Congratulations and thank you, Dr. Beck, for all you do for this publication and our noble profession. I am honored to have you lead our journey. I wish you much success in your new position! You deserve it!
