The intercollegiate competition included debate teams from Camden County College, Cumberland County College, Drexel University, Neumann University, Peirce College, Rowan University, West Chester University and Wilmington University.

Three rounds of competition took place during which each team had the opportunity to present their best arguments on whether police should be required to wear body cameras. Cumberland County College’s teams, of two students each, scored the highest number of points for one college.

Following the three rounds of debate, the two teams with the highest points—Cumberland County College and Rowan University—moved on to the finals. This was the first time Cumberland’s Criminal Justice team has advanced to the final round of the regional Criminal Justice Debate.

Congratulations to Cumberland's students on a job well done!
