Each year the program awards the Susette M. Talarico Public Service Leadership Award to the student- or students- who have shown exemplary service during their time in the program. This year, we have two winners: Delaney Burke and Allison Victoria Reid.

Criminal Justice is proud to announce that Award-Winning Advisor, Lindsay Dickerson, joined the program this past year to guide our Criminal Justice Students. Lindsay got her degree in Criminal Justice at UGA in 2012 and is elated to be back in the department.

I, Ned Phares, have retired as the Academic Advisor for the Criminal Justice Studies Program at the University of Georgia.

The program expects to have a new advisor by sometime August.

At 11:00 am on Wednesday, February 12th 2020 in the Walker Room of Dean Rusk Hall (UGA School of Law) Dr. John Patrick Jarvis will speak on "Lessons Learned in Applying Social Science: Bridging Perceived Divides Between Academics and Practitioners".

Only one of this year's alumni panelists does not remember an alumni panel when they were a student. The earliest memory of an alumni panel was from a student here in 1993 ... so let's say we've had a quarter century of grads returning to share and interact with current majors. Thank you!
