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.
