National Criminal Justice Month

May 16th, 2016 Posted in College News & Events

CRIMINAL JUSTICE FAIRActivities sponsored by CCC Criminal Justice Department were held throughout March on the Auburn campus, which included The Criminal Justice Fair.  The Fair provided an opportunity for students to learn straight from the professionals “the good, the bad and the ugly” involved with a criminal justice career.  Teri Misiaszek, Assistant Professor with the Criminal Justice Department said, “They get what they call a ‘CSI’ effect by watching television; students see the dramatization from a lot of TV shows, but then they realize that it’s something totally different once they get into a field.” Police and corrections agencies from around New York, several federal agencies, community corrections, human services departments, law offices, and security firms attended the event.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE FAIR-2During the month, several lectures took place with Faculty members David Connelly and Doug Kinney, Director of Public Safety; along with Cayuga County Sheriff Department Sergeant Detective Cornelius and Detective Franklin.  Students also attended a town hall meeting that was held on Cayuga’s Auburn campus with U.S. Rep. John Katko, on the topic of the heroin epidemic in Cayuga County.  Other activities including games like CJ Bingo and a tour of the Auburn Correctional Facility.  More information about the CJ Department can be found on their Facebook page at:  https://www.facebook.com/CCC.CJDepartment/.
