Hiring Processes for Law Enforcement/Criminal Justice
Wednesday September 30, 2-4 p.m., Bonnie Auditorium
Have you ever wondered why law enforcement and criminal justice hiring processes take so long?
Or why background investigators want the name of your teacher from the fourth grade?
Or what types of questions can be asked on a polygraph exam?
The Radford University Department of Criminal Justice is hosting a presentation on the process of obtaining employment in the field of criminal justice. Criminal justice hiring processes are unlike any other hiring processes so presenters will provide insight on obtaining careers with federal, state, and local agencies.
- Special Agent Brian Corcoran, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General
- Mr. Eric Snow, Radford University Department of Criminal Justice and former Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Investigator
- Captain Brad St. Clair, Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office
- Mr. Ben Wright, Radford University Department of Criminal Justice and former Virginia Department of Corrections Warden.
This presentation will help you to more effectively interact with potential employers at the Criminal Justice Networking Invitational. Students of all class levels are invited and encouraged to attend.
