DPSST’s Director Eriks Gabliks said, “Law enforcement agencies around the state are looking for qualified men and women who reflect the communities they serve to fill vacant positions within their agency.”

Gabliks said the ” Saturday event will focus on bringing women into the criminal justice profession and will have a panel discussion and other activities specifically to share the opportunities available. While the Saturday event will have a focus on women, all are invited and welcome to attend.”

This is a great opportunity to find out about employment opportunities in criminal justice agencies around the state.
