Women in Criminal Justice

As professional women in the Criminal Justice System we have a responsibility to address issues and explore solutions that impact our roles as members of the legal system. We represent a variety of agencies within the Adult and Juvenile Systems including: Law Enforcement, Judicial, Corrections, Probation, Parole, Defense and Education.

Our dilemmas are not unique, nor are the solutions to be found only within the Criminal Justice System. In working with a variety of colleagues, women will continue developing core competencies to achieve leadership positions. We are excited to enter the twenty-first century with new collaborations, new role models and new successes

Each year during the month of April, the Women in Criminal Justice Annual Conference is held at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center.  Various workshop topics are designed to help attendees develop a format to exchange ideas, network, and develop technical skills to enhance our capabilities.

Such topics as:

  • “Leadership for Changing Lives: Protection, Prevention and Treatment for Youth”
  • “Mentoring: Leadership and the Next Generation”
  • “Human Trafficking”
  • “Leadership for Emerging Issues”
  • “Community Organizing and the Opioid Crisis”

Please consider attending our next conference, “Leadership: Taking the lead in emerging issues”, on Friday, April 14th, 2017 at the Sturbridge Host Hotel and Conference Center, Sturbridge, MA:
