Hays, Kan. – Members of the Delta Tau Omega Chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association/Lambda Alpha Epsilon (ACJA/LAE) traveled to Warrensburg, Missouri this fall to compete in the Region 3 Conference. FHSU’s team of 21 members was the largest criminal justice club group to travel to a regional or national conference. Also, the team members took home more awards than they had in any previous competition.

“It speaks volumes to the criminal justice majors and minors who take their involvement in this organization and their education seriously,” said Dr. Tamara Lynn said. “We look forward to the continued success of all members of the organization.”

The club competed against chapters at Garden City Community College, Metro Community College (Nebraska), Peru State University (Nebraska), Central Missouri University, Central Methodist University (Missouri), and California State University, Long Beach.

Club members competed in written exams covering corrections, criminal law, juvenile justice, police administration and ACJA/LAE knowledge of the organization. Students also competed in skills-based competitions including crime scene teams, firearms (individual and teams), and physical agility.

The final competition includes scholarly poster presentations. Written exams, crime scene processing, and firearms competition levels include junior (freshmen and sophomores), senior (juniors, seniors, graduate students), and professional. The physical agility competition consists of age-separated male and female categories of 18 – 25, 26 – 35 and 36 + years. Poster presentations are divided into lower, upper and graduate levels.
