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. See Conference Information for the current schedule and a list of recent topics!

Support communication among those who share your interests, and:
1) Get a discount on bi-annual conference fees.
2) Receive a Newsletter.
3) Have access to the Members Only information on this Web-site!

All this and the networking with and camaraderie of a great group of people with a common interest in criminal justice! Quite a bargain at just $45 per year (students just $15!) Our year runs from July 1 through June 30.
