Criminal Justice

Created By:Edgar Velasquez


It all began when I started going to church in the city of Chicago and inside the church there was always a Chicago police officer and it got me interested in having a career in criminal justice.After this occurred My oldest sister and I watch episodes of Criminal Minds and when I see the episodes it motivates me even more to work for the law in a criminal justice career .It was 2013 when we moved to North lake and something interesting was that my neighbor is currently a sheriff and works inside prison I listen to what he does and I just said to myself I will work hard to become part of the Criminal Justice career.
