CJSA Guest Speaker TONIGHT!

Just a reminder that Chief David Mitchell will be presenting at our meeting TODAY, November 18 at 5PM in Margaret Brent B room in Stamp. Please make sure you get there on time, and come ready to hear from Chief Mitchell about his experiences as Director of Public Safety and Chief of Police for the University of Maryland, College Park Campus. With over 4 decades working in law enforcement, he will certainly be able to give us valuable insight into the field based on his experiences.

Please feel free to bring any friends, CCJS or not. It would be awesome to have a strong showing for this event, so please try to get there if you can! Let me know if you have any questions.

I am looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow!
