Criminal Justice Graduate Graduates Top of Police Academy Class

A spotlight on AU Criminal Justice graduate Mariah Lindsey was recently featured by Ashland University.  Read on to see what Mariah's been up to!  To view the original spotlight, visit the post here.

"Mariah Lindsey graduated from Ashland with a degree in Criminal Justice and a minor in Sociology. During her time on campus Mariah was a member of the Track & Field team as a sprinter, as well as being a member of the Black Student Union and Psychology Club for two years! After graduation Mariah was accepted into the Corpus Christi Police Academy in Texas. While there, she underwent intense training in areas including firearms training, defensive tactics, physical training, defensive driving, water survival, and boxing! Academically, the Cadets were challenged in classes such as Penal Code, Transportation Code, U.S./Texas Constitution, Code of Criminal Procedures, Communications, Race & Ethnicity, and Spanish.

In the Academy, Mariah received the honor of Top Academic and was second in Physical Fitness! She now works as a police officer for the City of Corpus Christi, where she responds to calls for service ranging from traffic accidents to disturbances, robberies, civil matters, stabbings, shootings, and murders, just to name a few! Mariah says that the Criminal Justice Program here at Ashland gave her opportunities to expand and network, and also credited her professors and advisor for being readily available to answer any questions that she may have about the field! Mariah says this is the best job she’s ever had and she enjoys working for a great department with major goals for change! Congrats Mariah on everything you’ve accomplished, and all your hard work paying off!"
