The Mission of the Albany State University Department of Criminal Justice, Psychology and Sociology is to forge strategic links between professional criminal justice and Forensic Science agencies, academic research, education of the students, and promotion of justice. This provides for enhancement of criminal justice agencies, criminal justice research, and students’ education. Flowing from this enhancement is the strengthening of the community and the overall quality of life within the University service area. Service to the community, development of students, and the advancement of criminal justice are also the goals of the Institute. The Institution’s Mission and goal completion will be advanced by its continuing commitment to quality education, service to criminal justice professionals and the community, and the continued development of the Institute through research and modernization.
