Students Gain Insights from Criminal Justice Day Activities
Keiser University’s Flagship campus recently welcomed members of law enforcement, guest presenters, and local School District of Palm Beach County (SDPBC) Choice Program and Criminal Justice Academy students to its Criminal Justice Day program.
Under the leadership of Professor and Criminal Justice and Forensics Concentration Department Program Director Scott Addlesberger and colleagues, the event was designed to highlight the many opportunities for service in the field. It included a mock crime scene for learners to analyze, recruiting and information forums, a Breathalyzer vehicle, K-9 and motorcycle demonstrations, SWAT trucks and gear, a bomb squad, and a variety of other interactive opportunities to learn about the field.
Keiser University thanks all of its participating partners for the successful effort including its instructors who bring real-world experience to the classrooms, as many are active or prior serving law enforcement members from a variety of fields. Students are also very thankful to those who attended the event including members of the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, the Florida Highway Patrol, the West Palm Beach Police Department, Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Immigrations Customs Enforcement, the Secret Service, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the Drowning and Human Trafficking Coalitions, and more.
Keiser University’s Criminal Justice programs cover topics that include but are not limited to deviant behavior, forensics, law enforcement, investigation, victimology, private security, corrections, and juvenile justice and how components work together and are governed by our laws, the Supreme Court, and the U.S. Constitution.
