Onondaga Community College’s Criminal Justice Club is off to a strong start this academic year. The Club held its first meeting September 6. Guest speaker was Detective Sergeant Derek McGork of the Syracuse Police Department’s Homicide Squad. McGork asked students about their career aspirations within law enforcement, shared his career path and discussed the work he does today as one of the leaders of the Homicide Squad.
The Criminal Justice Club has a reputation for bringing outstanding guest speakers to campus. Experts who spent time with students in recent years include Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler and Melinda McGunnigle of the Onondaga County District Attorney’s Office.
The Criminal Justice Club meets monthly, plans activities and takes part in community service. Anyone interested in joining the Criminal Justice Club can email Professor Peter Patnode at firstname.lastname@example.org.
