What time period will memberships cover?
Unlimited memberships will cover a calendar year, January 1 to December 31. Memberships must be renewed on an annual basis.

Will any CJI classes be available at no cost?
We will continue to offer some of our grant-funded classes at no cost. Please visit Free Classes for a listing of classes that are offered at no cost.

What if I need to cancel?
We request a 2-week notice if you need to cancel your attendance in a class. However, we will allow for emergency cancellations.

If you are unable to attend a course for which you have registered, please contact the Institute as soon as possible at (501) 570-8000 or register@cji.edu. In many instances, courses offered by the Criminal Justice Institute fill to capacity. When this happens, officers who are not admitted to the course are placed on a waiting list to be notified if vacancies become available. By contacting the Institute in advance when you are unable to attend a course, CJI staff can ensure that those on the waiting list are given the opportunity to participate.

If I have to cancel attendance in an individual class, can I receive a refund?
If you meet the cancellation requirements noted above, a credit will be extended towards another class taken during the calendar year. However, officers who do not cancel will not be issued a credit.

What are the payment options?
Payments can be made by check or credit card.

Checks should be mailed to:
Criminal Justice Institute
Attn: Amber Jackson

Little Rock, AR 72205

To pay by credit card, please contact Amber Jackson at 501-570-8024 or aljackson@cji.edu
