March is National Criminal Justice Month

Established in 2009 because the criminal justice system "touches the lives of nearly every American in some form or another," the purpose of National Criminal Justice Month is to "promote societal awareness regarding the causes and consequences of crime, as well as strategies for preventing and responding to crime."

The Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences, an organization that seeks to make the public aware of the need to "make our criminal justice system as effective as possible," asks that we take time this month to applaud the efforts of the many individuals who work in the criminal justice field.

The Ashland University Criminal Justice Department extends its appreciation to the dedicated men and women who are an integral part of our justice system.
