Dr. Jason Doll received his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice Studies in 1998 from the University of South Dakota. During his undergraduate studies, he was searching for a way to combine the skills and knowledge he was acquiring from both majors and came across the area of forensic psychology.
Moving to Fresno, California, Dr. Doll received his Ph.D. in Forensic Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology (now Alliant International University) in 2004. For his doctoral dissertation, he examined the effects of community policing on residents’ fear of crime. He also received a Master of Arts degree in Organizational Behavior in 2002 while engaged in his doctoral studies.
Dr. Doll has worked with local police departments and county and state correctional facilities, examining organizational issues and cultures that are present in these organizations. His main areas of interest are police psychology and legal psychology (e.g., witness memory/identification, false confession, and deception detection).
