Dr. Jerome G. Miller With saddened hearts, we announce that Dr. Jerome G. Miller, Co-Founder of NCIA, passed away on August 7, 2015.  Dr. Jerome Miller, better known as “Jerry”, was compassionate and committed to the human service and juvenile corrections field throughout his 60 year career. “We at NCIA owe a lot to Dr. Miller. He was my mentor, my inspiration and instilled in me the need to provide services to those most in need.  He lived his life with the tenets of unconditional care and the need to provide individualized plans for all those we serve.  His constant theme was to treat each client as we would want our own family and friends treated.  These are all values I have tried to instill in NCIA.  He was a prolific writer and always spoke from his heart”, stated Herb Hoelter, Co-Founder & CEO of NCIA. Since Herb & Jerry founded NCIA in 1977, Jerry has had a profound impact on our company’s continued success. With Jerry’s expertise, NCIA became known for influencing public policy in the development and growth of alternatives to incarceration across the United States. Through NCIA, Dr. Miller opened the Augustus Institute, one of the first community-based clinics for the treatment of sex offenders, and helped numerous jurisdictions in closing or reducing juvenile prison populations throughout the country. He also authored and assisted on numerous books and studies including the Real War on Crime (HaperCollins, 1996) and Search and Destroy: African American Males in the Criminal Justice System (Cambridge University Press, 1996; 2nd edition 2011). Dr. Miller was a powerful force in the justice system and we are grateful for all his efforts, as NCIA wouldn’t be the same without him. His funeral was held on Friday, August 14, 2015.   Below are links to Dr. Miller’s obituaries from the New York Times and Washington Post: http://wapo.st/1N9TOj7 http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/16/us/jerome-g-miller-who-reshaped-juvenile-justice-dies-at-83.html?ref=obituaries&_r=0
