PLATTEVILLE - The University of Wisconsin-Platteville Criminal Justice Association and Criminal Justice Department faculty will host the 37th annual Criminal Justice Career Day.

Monday evening will feature keynote speaker Dorinda Freymiller, special agent in charge of narcotics and special assignments at the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation. She will share her experience resolving cases as well as insights on duties and requirements for becoming a DCI agent.

On Tuesday, students will have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of agents, officers and representatives from approximately 90 booths for federal, state and local criminal justice agencies.
