“Sustainable Justice” was the theme of the 2012 Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences conference, which took place in New York City from March 13-17. Thirteen students from Fairmont State University’s Alpha Phi Sigma group attended the conference. Alpha Phi Sigma is the national criminal justice honor society, which was recognized over 25 years ago by ACJS as the future of the organization and holds a conference in conjunction with ACJS every year. While Alpha Phi Sigma offers its own activities, the students are free to participate in any of the ACJS events.
The Hon. Michael Aloi, Judge of the 16th Judicial Circuit, Marion County, gave a presentation in commemoration of Constitution Day titled “Citizenship and the Constitution.” The event is sponsored by Alpha Phi Sigma.
The event was from noon to 12:50 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19, in Multi-media Room A of the Ruth Ann Musick Library on the shared main campus of Fairmont State University and Pierpont Community & Technical College.
Fairmont State University criminal justice students took second place in a national competition, and an FSU student successfully competed for a national office during a March 2011 conference in Toronto.
