New Beginnings for The Criminal Justice Club 

The Criminal Justice Club has made it’s comeback from its last appearance, which was four years ago. The individual who proudly represents and started this club up and running again is Professor Suzanna Godboldt. She states, “This club is going to focus on exposing people for career awareness, a recruitment tool for agencies, and to get involved off campus because there’s nothing other than seeing it to better understand it.”  

This fall, the Criminal Justice Club is focusing on completing a self-defense class for individuals who have joined the club. Godboldt mentioned, “It’s an exciting first event everyone should be a part of and a great way to start the club running.” Another short-term goal for the club is touring the law enforcement center here in Jamestown. Touring the law enforcement facilities will give students insight into what the environment is like in these facilities and gives them an opportunity to ask questions to professionals.  

Furthermore, a long-term goal for the club is to explore out-of-state facilities with longer trips to expand the knowledge of our club members. Professor Godboldt thought that an all-female prison in Nebraska would be a unique experience to tour due to the prison nursery program!   

Lastly, Professor Godboldt is beneficially the key to community connections. These efforts will teach valuable lessons and provide unique experiences that each member will be able to take into a workplace environment!  

If you’re interested come meet Officer Haley Comstock, Officer Bridget VanDanacker, Officer CJ Toedter, and Officer Jayden Schlarmann or email Suzanne.Godboldt@uj.edu. Professor Godboldt will post announcements on the Criminal Justice Bulletin Board on the second floor of Lyngstad!
