Albertus Magnus College to hold Criminal Justice Camp in New Haven
NEW HAVEN - Albertus Magnus College will hold its third annual Criminal Justice Camp on June 27.
Pre-registration is required by June 18.
The Office of Admission, Coordinator of Criminal Justice Programs Michael Geary, and several local law enforcement agencies joined forces to coordinate this free one-day camp. They created the camp in the hopes of successfully educating high school juniors and seniors who are interested in the criminal justice field, according to a release.
Who is running the program you might ask?
The release said this year State Police spokesman/media relations Commander Lt. J. Paul Vance and Albertus President Julia M. McNamara will run the program.
The students will be grouped in teams and attend multiple sessions dealing with different types of criminal justice, according to the release. The sessions include topics of crime scene evaluation, the canine program, fingerprinting and eyewitness testimonials. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to learn about the police support services, the release said. Even a helicopter, seat belt crash simulator, and bomb-retrieving robot will be on site for the students, the release said.
Along with an overview of possible career paths, the students will have the life altering opportunity to have in person testimonials from alumni and current graduate students, the release said. The students will gain a variety of knowledge and background from the diversity of the presenters from their respective sectors. For example, presenters work in the fields of the Special Victims Unit, State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation and local law enforcement. According to a release, this year, military personnel will attend to share their extraordinary experiences and demonstrate field equipment.
Free to rising high school juniors and seniors, the camp will include a complimentary lunch as well as a chance for campers to speak with professionals in the criminal justice field, according to a release.
This event will take place on the campus of Albertus Magnus College from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. To check out last year’s camp, view videos and pictures here.
