Celebrate Criminal Justice Month!

In 2009, Congress designated March as "National Criminal Justice Month."  In celebration of Criminal Justice Month, the criminal justice student organizations (Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Criminal Justice Honor Society; the Criminal Justice Club; and Lambda Alpha Epsilon, the American Criminal Justice Association) are hosting several events, to which you are invited.  Follow the links the learn more about each event.

On Saturday, March 22, Alpha Phi Sigma will be sponsoring a mock crime scene competition.  Registration is free; teams will compete to process a crime scene to solve a famous case!  Prizes will be awarded to the highest-scoring teams, who will be recognized at the Criminal Justice Banquet.  Contact aps@radford.edu for entry information.  Each team will have one hour to work the scene; teams will be notified in advance as to what time their access to the scene will begin.

On Sunday, March 23, the Criminal Justice Club and Radford City Police Department will host a criminal justice obstacle course to showcase what physical agility testing processes include.  The course will be available at 2:00pm and is located beside the Radford Animal Shelter.  

On Sunday, March 30, Lambda Alpha Epsilon will be sponsoring a police K9 demonstration at 3:00pm at Heth Lawn.  (Note that this is a revised date and time from the original announcement).

Students and faculty are also invited to attend the Criminal Justice Banquet, to be held from 6:00-9:00pm on Friday, March 28 in Muse Banquet Hall.  The banquet will recognize students, faculty, and criminal justice community members, while celebrating with the Radford University Criminal Justice Community.  Tickets are available for $20 each by completing the form at the above link.  Payments should be made by Tuesday, March 25 and submitted to the Alpha Phi Sigma mailbox in the Criminal Justice Building (307 Adams Street).
