Every day, criminal justice professionals perform duties and provide services vital to the stability of our society, the safety of our communities, and the security of our families.
In recognition of the essential role that these professionals play, the University of Georgia Griffin Campus is excited to host its first-ever “CJ Day at UGA” mini-conference on Friday, November 22, 2013, 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM. This conference brings together criminal justice professionals, elected officials, business and community leaders, students, and academics from across the state to discuss careers and emerging issues in criminal justice.
Presenters representing a broad spectrum of criminal justice fields—law enforcement, the courts, and corrections—will discuss topics ranging from the mental health issues of incarcerated women, re-entry services, and the privatization of prisons to juvenile offender management issues. The conference will also address career pathing for individuals interested in pursuing a criminal justice profession and for CJ professionals interested in exploring career options in the field.
While the conference will be of particular interest to individuals in the criminal justice profession as well as to students, it is open to the general public.
