Criminal Justice Club Executive 2008-2009
President: Ryan Eagles

Secretary/Treasurer: Jennifer Plourde
Advisor: Lisa Leduc
We are a very active student club. We plan two major club trips each academic year; one in-state and one out.
In the past we have gone to Philadelphia to tour the historic Eastern State Penitentiary (www.easternstate.org) and to Washington D.C. to participate in a specialized Law Enforcement training at the National Holocaust museum (www.ushmm.org).
We have also made trips to tour the state crime lab in Augusta and the Maine Correctional Center in Windham.
We do many fundraising activities throughout the year to support these activities including car washes; t-shirt and hat sales; and our famous Law Enforcement vs. Students Basketball Game. Every January we put together a student team to play local law enforcement officers (many of which are UMPI alum). The student team remains undefeated as of 2008.
The Club also participates in various service projects helping agencies like the Battered Women's Project and the Aroostook Mental Health Center. We also sponsor many on-campus training events for local criminal justice agencies including the Maine Criminal Justice Academy.
