Membership in the association gives the student an opportunity to improve their C J skills and knowledge, network with people from all over the United States and further criminal justice professionalism. Membership is open to persons who are enrolled in the criminal justice program at the college and who are currently employed or were at the time of their application employed in an area concerned with the administration of criminal justice, as well as persons honorably retired from a career in an area concerned with the administration of criminal justice.
