    The jobs are endless, any job you can think of that has to do with corrections, law, police, you will atleast get an interview if you have a college degree. I see your in saco, im in Portland, what college are you going to around here?

        drop CJ and do business or something you can fall back on. you can have any degree. doesn't have to be CJ. some agencies suggest CJ , but it's useless. you'll learn more in the academy

          SMCC is an excellent excellent place to get an associate degree. i went there, teachers are awesome, places are fun, seriously, one of the best criminal justice associate programs around. USM's transfer things IS NOT for criminal justice though. I tried doing it, send me a private message if u want more info. i highly recommend smcc though. i go to husson college now in south portland, where i am working on my BA criminal justice degree. husson accepted 57/61 credits. and usm wouldnt take that many.

              Bwah-hah-hah, then you, my friend, are barking up the wrong tree.

              Criminal Justice in NOT an industry in which you have much more than a miniscule shot in h*ll of making a lot of money.

              Perhaps you should try the real money trail, entrepreneurship, or the better-than-average living you can make in the professions (medicine, law, engineering).

                just like what EDJ said, with CJ you ain't gonna be making crap
                PO, sheriffs, corrections, juvies, probation etc. they don't make a lot of money.

                if you want money do the business, accounting, law, engineering, med route
                the closest thing i can think of where you can work with juvies or prisoners is a psych and make decent money

                          Helping kids and becoming a swat officer are two oppostie ends of the justice system spectrum. Figure out what you really want to do before you move any further.

                              I say major what your interested in, and your interest and desire will lead you to the right job with the right salary. If you want to be a game warden, major in marine biology or wildlife biology. Point is, many people join a major they aren't interested in but only get it in for the money, and their lack of interest causes them not to study as they should. Then their grades may lack or they end up being miserable, so if it's criminal justice, major in criminal justice. There are probably many criminal justice majors who make a lot of money. Only you determine that by your progression in your first job, and post-graduate decisions. I would get a masters degree that really helps. As far as criminal justice, I believe I read in announcement that Diplomatic Security pays extra for criminal justice majors (graduate I believe) and the DEA also.

                              Criminal Justice also is a good way to help children/kids. Depends on what you do, many officers go to classrooms and tutor, give out toys during holidays. Check out sociology too. Do what's your hearts desire and God will send you the job and money, trust me. The FBI has community outreach specialists, victim advocate and etc who specialize in the sociological tasks your interested in, and criminal justice degrees are favorable with those programs. But please get a masters degree if you can, but you don't have too.

                              Also get these books, you can buy it from the users from cheap unless you want it from amazon.

                              Also, do a google search for "criminal justice jobs," or "criminal justice major jobs" etc. Don't know if this helped or not, but do what you feel your called to do. God Bless.
