The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will host a “Careers in Criminal Justice” event on Wednesday, March 14. 

“The purpose of the event is to provide students and community members with information about the different types of careers they can pursue with a degree in criminal justice,” said Molly Smith, assistant professor of criminal justice.

The two-part event will include a panel discussion on popular careers in criminal justice from 10 a.m. to noon in Donaghey Student Center Ledbetter A, followed by a job fair from noon to 3 p.m. in the Donaghey Student Center Upper Concourse.

“Panelists will be discussing what students can be doing now at UA Little Rock in order to increase their chances of being successfully hired by each of their departments,” Smith said. “This is a great opportunity for students to see how their hard work now can pay off in the long term and lead to a fulfilling career in the field of criminal justice.”

Job seekers can discuss career opportunities with the following agencies: Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Inspector General in Fort Worth, Texas; United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Arkansas; Arkansas Department of Correction; Arkansas Community Correction; Arkansas Game and Fish Commission; Arkansas State Police (SWAT); Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office; and the North Little Rock, Little Rock, and Fort Smith police departments.

The event is sponsored by the Criminal Justice Society and the UA Little Rock Department of Criminal Justice.
