This event is open to everyone including interested applicants; middle school, high school and college students of all ages; parents; veterans; employment and guidance counselor s; etc.

More than three dozen city, county, state, tribal, university and federal agencies are participating.

The reason for this first-ever statewide event, agencies around the state are looking to hire more than 500 qualified employees to fill both sworn (police, corrections, parole and probation, emergency communications) and non-sworn (chemists, nurses, CSI, etc.) positions at city, county, state, tribal, university and federal law enforcement agencies.

The Saturday event will focus on bringing women into the criminal justice profession and will have a panel discussion and other activities specifically to share the opportunities available. All individuals are encouraged to attend both days.

This is a great opportunity to find out about employment opportunities in criminal justice agencies around the state.
