3/22/2011

The Criminal Justice program at Calhoun Community College will host its Career Day event, planned for Tuesday, April 5, 2011, from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at the college’s Huntsville/Cummings Research Park Campus.

According to Criminal Justice instructor and program coordinator Will Culver, the purpose of the Career Day event is to afford high school and college-age students the opportunity to see, and experience firsthand, the career choices that are available in the criminal justice field and to give them information on the training needed for these careers.  “Our Career Day will provide opportunities for law enforcement, governmental and educational agencies and organizations to recruit potential candidates for employment,” Culver said.  “This event is also an opportunity for two-year colleges to recruit high school students and for four-year institutions to recruit students enrolled in high schools and in two-year schools,” Culver added.

A number of local, state, and federal law enforcement and security agencies have been invited to attend, including area police and sheriffs’ departments, district of attorneys’ offices, the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences, Alabama State Troopers, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the U.S. Secret Service.  Culver stated that invitations have also been sent to local high schools from city and county school systems in Madison, Morgan, Limestone, Lawrence, and Marshall Counties to participate in the day’s events.
