At 9:30 a.m., Madden will speak on opportunities in law enforcement to an expected group of 250 students and 20 federal and state criminal justice agencies. He will also discuss the victims’ rights bill that he is co-sponsoring, which will prohibit criminals who murdered a family member from claiming any part of the victim’s estate.
According to Law & Justice Professor Stanley Yeldell, Madden, the most decorated graduate of Rowan’s department of law & justice studies, was chosen for his contributions to victim awareness and his outstanding career achievements. He is a former trooper and acting superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. He also was director of investigations at the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office. Currently, Madden is the dean of public safety at Gloucester County College. He has represented the 4th Legislative District since 2004.
Gamma Chi Sigma and The Victim’s Awareness Club, two student criminal justice and law enforcement clubs are sponsoring the event, which will host a wide variety of potential employers including the New Jersey State Police, the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms, the Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Secret Service. Representatives from many prosecutor’s offices, public defender’s offices, local police forces, private security companies and others are expected to attend.
