Criminal Justice Program
The Criminal Justice Program (CJP) at Wiley College was founded in 1998 to help criminal justice professionals keep pace with the changing demands of their fields. The CJP approaches the field of criminal justice in its entirety – from public safety to human rights, media relations to public policy. At the core of our program is our faculty – scholars, practitioners and teachers who are committed to exploring complex issues surrounding crime, justice and public safety in a free society. By bringing together Wiley College’s distinguished and diverse academic community with working professionals, the CJP serves as a catalyst for new ideas and innovative practices that are helping academia, policy makers and practitioners serve the public now and in the future.
