Careers in Criminal Justice: Find Yours with Some Help From Our Panel of Pros
Working in criminal justice can be both risky and rewarding. It’s the perfect choice if you enjoy a challenge and are passionate about helping others. And as long as individuals and groups require services and professionals to help keep communities safe, healthy and stable, criminal justice careers will continue to thrive!
The U.S. population is projected to grow by 89 million residents from 2010 to 2050, which will likely lead to higher crime rates and thus, a higher demand for criminal justice professionals.
