THE ASSOCIATION FOR CRIMINAL JUSTICE RESEARCH (California) A dynamic mix of public servants, practitioners, evaluators, analysts, students, and academics united by a common interest in criminal justice issues. See the interest areas displayed on our Membership Roster to discover our variety!

The Association seeks to stimulate discussion of current criminal justice issues. Analysts, academics, and practitioners meet to hear energetic presentations at bi-annual conferences – in the spring in Sacramento and in the fall in Huntington Beach.
