FBI Recruiter FX Flaherty spoke at Criminal Justice Day about the FBI application and hiring process.
Students studying criminal justice learned about possible career paths during the Seventh Annual Criminal Justice Day on March 21, 2019. The three presenters were Chief of Rockland County Sheriff’s Patrol William Barbera, FBI recruiters FX Flaherty and Sahara Juarbe, and Department of Homeland Security Deputy Regional Director Jason S. Martinez.
Coordinator of the Criminal Justice Program Tara Parrello, Ph.D., said every year students gain useful information from the presentations. “The students feel very fortunate that they get to ask questions and to hear about these careers that maybe some of them didn’t know existed,” she said.
A few exceptional students are invited to have lunch with the speakers after the presentations to allow them to ask even more questions. Criminal Justice Day takes place in the Fury Lecture Hall of the Prusmack Center.

Students collected evidence at a mock crime scene outside of the Granito Center on February 21, 2018 as part of a Criminal Investigations Class.
Students taking a Criminal Investigations course were busy on February 20, 2018 investigating a mock crime scene outside the Granito Center. The mock crime scene included a car with two gunshot victims and a missing driver. Adjunct Professor William Barbara, who also serves as Chief of Patrol of the Rockland Sheriff’s Department, said the students were all acting as investigators.
“The students will photograph the scene, sketch the scene, gather the evidence, collect the evidence, lift the fingerprints and do the interviews of all the witnesses,” he said.
Chief Barbera said that he teaches the students interview and interrogation techniques as part of his course. After processing the crime scene, the students interview a suspect and try to get a confession.
