Conference on Victimization, Criminal Justice at Branch Campus April 7
SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury will host “Victimization: Real World Concerns,” April 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Scoville Auditorium on the SUNY Adirondack campus.
According to Dr. Stephen Danna, dean of the branch campus, the conference is designed to “create awareness about crime victims’ services and to offer criminal-justice training.”
Set to coincide with National Crime Victims’ Rights Week, Danna said the program includes “an incredible group of speakers and panelists who will share their expertise and resources. Our keynote, New York State Trooper Sayeh Rivazfar, will describe her harrowing abduction as a child and her subsequent decision to dedicate her life as a first responder.”
“Panels will address the academic and applied sides of criminal justice, and we will end our day with a session on ‘What You Should Know About Elder Abuse and Fraud,’” Danna said.
Participants will also be able to look into the criminal justice major offered at SUNY Plattsburgh. A panel of SUNY Plattsburgh criminal justice alumni will discuss working in the field today.
The conference is free, but space is limited and registration is required. For more information, contact Lynn Anthony, 518-792-5425 or email [email protected].
