Representatives from federal, state, and local law enforcement made presentations to students as part of National Criminal Justice in March. Topics included the missions of their agencies, how agencies cooperated in Alaska, qualifications for prospective candidates, and how the experience of law enforcement differs in Alaska from other states.

Col. Keith Mallard, Alaska State Troopers, and Chief Mark Mew, Anchorage Police Department, spoke to students on March 23. Click here for the podcast.

Special Agent Eric Gonzalez, Chief Counsel for the FBI; Deputy U.S. Marshal Jimmy Johnson, U.S.Marshals Service; and Group Supervisor Todd Jones, Drug Enforcement Administration, discussed their work in Alaska on March 29. The podcast for this event will be uploaded shortly.

The Justice Center and the UAA Justice Club co-sponsored a series of presentations during March in recognition of National Criminal Justice Month. All the events were free and open to UAA students, faculty, staff, and the public.
