The Criminal Justice Club seeks to broaden the students' understanding and familiarity with the three major components of the criminal justice system, (police, courts, and corrections) by organizing and conducting seminars, demonstrations, field trips, and sponsoring guest speakers. Club members also participate in various service programs sponsored by the college.
The Club has sponsored field trips to the following criminal justice facilities: Greenhaven and Sing-Sing prisons, the New York City Police Department, the Westchester County Surrogate's Court, and the New York State Supreme Court in White Plains. During the trip to the Supreme Court, students not only observed court proceedings, but were provided the opportunity to discuss their observations with a member of our adjunct faculty, Justice Anthony Scarpino. Club members also participate in several community service activities including Midnight Run, which distributes food and clothing to the homeless in New York City, and Abraham House, a center and service which provides an alternative to incarceration and assists in programs to prevent recidivism with offenders. We also participate in conferences, including The Arnold Markle Symposium. Each semester the Criminal Justice Club hosts guest speakers currently active in the field to meet students and provide opportunities for internships and employment.
Criminal Justice Club meetings are held monthly and membership is open to all Iona students who are in good academic standing.
