Criminal Justice Society visits federal law enforcement center
On any given spring afternoon, cadets can be found in class, relaxing, playing sports or studying. For a dozen Criminal Justice majors arson, bombs and drug raids consumed a recent afternoon.

The members of The Citadel Criminal Justice Society recently visited the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga., and spent time at the ATF National Training Academy. There the cadets participated in different basic agent training exercises like a mock drug house raid, an explosives demonstration, a bomb detection simulation, and arson investigation simulation.
“The purpose of the trip was to learn more about careers in the criminal justice field, learn from leaders in the field and better prepare ourselves for future employment with ATF or other federal agencies,” said Cadet Andrew Mutz, president of the Criminal Justice Society.
Club members are actively seeking opportunities to learn more about criminal justice careers, host guest speakers and network with leaders in the field, Mutz said. The club has been inactive in recent years and Mutz hopes to change that by increasing networking opportunities with alumni with expertise in criminal justice career fields.
“Anyone who would be willing to come in an speak to the club, help us organize visits to agencies or places of work, or possibly help fund the club and some of the activities would be welcome because we are trying to rekindle the flame after being relatively inactive for a long time, he said.
