American Criminal Justice Association
Tau Alpha Omicron is the local chapter of Lambda Alpha Epsilon, the American Criminal Justice Association (ACJA).
The Association has a very active campus membership. All criminal justice and forensic science majors are encouraged to join and participate. The organization sponsors monthly career exploration programs that introduce members to professionals from law enforcement, corrections, and judiciary agencies at all levels. The Association also develops student teams to compete with teams from other college and university chapters at Regional and National conferences in crime scene analysis, handgun marksmanship, physical agility, and written tests.
In the spring semester, the American Criminal Justice Association sponsors a symposium that highlights an exhilarating subject in criminal justice. A keynote speaker and a job fair create an exciting event that both students and professionals enjoy.
The Trine University handgun team is run by the American Criminal Justice Association and holds team practices on multiple occasions each semester.
