Cedarville, Ohio—According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the demand for law enforcement officers and corrections workers will increase between 11 and 17 percent by 2016. To help meet this need, Cedarville University is recruiting and training students for the field of criminal justice.

On Saturday, Oct. 24, the University will host an event for high school students looking to pursue careers in criminal justice. Criminal Justice Day will give participants an opportunity to tour campus, receive an overview of the curriculum, and assess their aptitudes for different careers.

In the afternoon, students will have the opportunity to learn about the three areas of criminal justice: law enforcement, courts and corrections. Guest speakers will address the students and field any questions the attendees may have. ROTC representatives will also be available to discuss how their programs can help pay for a college education.

Lunch is provided and will allow attendees to interact with the faculty, current students and the guest speakers.

“Criminal justice is a dynamic profession with many avenues of service in our state and across our nation,” says Dr. Nelson Henning, chair of the department of social work, criminal justice and sociology. “We’re committed to preparing men and women to work in this field by offering a biblical worldview in an excellent educational setting. By integrating Christian values into the curriculum, students are prepared to enter the workforce and serve and protect with integrity.”

Students may stay in the University’s residence halls Friday night. Parents of participants are also encouraged to attend.

Registration for this event is required. To register, visit www.cedarville.edu/criminaljusticeday.
