Criminal Justice Student Day

Today’s students in criminal justice studies are the potential leaders of tomorrow’s jails. In recognition of these future leaders, the American Jail Association is excited to invite criminal justice students to our Criminal Justice Student Day during our 41st Conference & Jail Expo.

The 9th Annual Criminal Justice Student Day on Tuesday, May 24 at the Long Beach Convention & Entertainment Center gives students and future leaders in the field the opportunity to attend workshops, participate in a Q&A session with jail practitioners, and tour the Jail Expo.
