An overview of the operations and facilities of the Picassent Social Integration Center. That was the goal of this activity organized by Professor Juan Carlos Vegas

Students of the Bachelor’s Degree in Criminology and the Double Degree in Psychology-Criminology and Law-Criminology from Universidad Europea de Valencia visited the “Torres Espioca” Social Integration Center in Picassent on June 20.
