Organizations

Our criminal justice student groups are active in building a stronger community among our majors and minors, and in educating students on criminal justice issues.

 

Criminal Justice Society

Our Criminal Justice Society is a social organization that brings together students who share common interests in crime and justice. The society regularly visits prison facilities in Huntsville, Texas, invites the Fort Worth Police Department K9 unit to campus for demonstrations and explores a police training facility. Aside from visiting various criminal justice facilities within the state, the group meets several times each semester to socialize, discuss issues and learn from guest speakers.

For information regarding upcoming events and membership, contact the Criminal Justice Society faculty adviser Dr. Katie Polzer at k.l.polzer@tcu.edu.

 

Alpha Phi Sigma

Our local chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma, the national criminal justice honor society, engages in a host of activities designed to give back to the community. Recently, members hosted a donation drive for The Women’s Center, volunteered at the Tarrant Area Food Bank, held a fundraiser to benefit troubled youth and sponsored a donation drive to provide stuffed animals to children experiencing the ill effects of crime. Membership requires a 3.2 GPA and the completion off our criminal justice courses. APS inductees are recognized at our spring banquet and with Honors cords at graduation.
