Cambridge, England - Jun 30, 2008 - Jerry Lee, owner of WBEB 101.1 FM, is focusing attention on criminology. The Jerry Lee Centre of Experimental Criminology will be dedicated at Cambridge University in England. Lee has raised millions of dollars and donated his own money for crime fighting research and initiatives around the world. He also established the Jerry Lee Center of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania in 2001.

The Cambridge Centre, located at the world's oldest Institute of Criminology, will be home to a team of experimental criminologists. Lawrence Sherman, the University's new Wolfson Professor of Criminology, will lead the Centre at Cambridge. Sherman is the founding president of the Academy of Experimental Criminology. Sherman was also the founding director of the Lee Center of Criminology and the Department of Criminology at the University of Pennsylvania, to which the new Lee Centre at Cambridge will be closely linked. This is the latest step in the development of their mutual vision through conversations, projects and fundraising from the U.S. Congress, the Pennsylvania General Assembly, the Philadelphia City Council and other private foundations.
