Occasionally, these regularly scheduled meetings include guests from criminal justice fields, such as local and federal law enforcement officers, who share professional advice and provide information about career opportunities.
Membership benefits include building relationships with other like-minded students through field trips, social gatherings, fundraising events and much more!
