The Alpha Omega Chapter of the American Criminal Justice Association Lambda Alpha Epsilon is one of many student and professional chapters throughout the United States. The chapter, founded in 1986, is located in Region IV of the ACJA/LAE. The Alpha Omega Chapter is a recognized student organization at Marshall University and is housed in the Criminal Justice Department.
Membership in the chapter and organization is open to criminal justice majors, minors, and professionals in the field. The purpose of the organization is to further professionalism in all areas of criminal justice. The emphasis of the ACJA/LAE journal, programs, conferences, presentations, workshops, and competitions is to improve and test the skills and knowledge of criminal justice professionals and students.
The AO Chapter is involved with volunteer programs such as Branches, the Domestic Violence Shelter, and Relay for Life.
Chapter members also compete individually and in teams at regional and national conferences in competitions that are divided into a Lower Student Division (generally freshmen and sophomores), Upper Student Division (Juniors and above) and Professional Division. The competitions involve the testing of professional knowledge and skills in Corrections, Crime Scene Investigation, Criminal Law, Firearms, Juvenile Justice, Law Enforcement Management, LAE Knowledge, and Physical Agility. Besides competitions, the Regionals and Nationals include seminars. At the past few Regional and National Conferences the seminar subjects have included Serial Killers, Forensics, Forensic Anthropology, Serious Incident Management, Ethics, Prisoners with Psychological Problems, Domestic Terrorism, Domestic Violence, Restorative Justice, Port Security, and Privatization of Justice.
