INFORMATION & BENEFITS2017-08-29T18:12:42-07:00

A major purpose of the Association for Criminal Justice Research (California), as stated in our Mission, is to encourage cooperative relations among persons engaged or interested in research in the criminal justice area for scientific purposes. Outside of the conferences we present, this encouragement is through media supported by memberships. We need the support of researchers, analysts and practitioners to continue and expand such endeavors as our newsletters, this website, and our social media pages. These ventures create a vast amount of information sharing among a diverse group of persons interested in criminal justice issues.


In addition to sharing information, the Association attempts to provide opportunities for researchers, analysts, practitioners, students, and others with an interest in criminal justice issues to interact at different levels. We hope that by expanding networking opportunities, we will support your particular projects and interests and allow you to share your thoughts and ideas. Through networking we hope to expand the understanding of and implementation of evidenced-based programs and practices. As part of this promotion of networking, we have provided a list of many of the organizations and agencies represented by our members in an “Affiliations” page.

In addition to the important intrinsic and more general reasons for becoming a member of ACJRca, there are several practical and financial benefits we offer to members:

  • Conference fee discounts: These discounts offset a part of the dues. Those who attend both conferences could save the equivalent of two-thirds of the costs of membership.
  • Newsletters: Members receive regular newsletters that tell of upcoming events that might be of interest, share information at conferences that might have been missed, share other items, such as articles and books, that have recently appeared, and generally keep members connected to ACJR and to each other
  • Website Members Only: Members have access to the “Members Only” section of our web site which features past conference presentations and other “historical” items, information on other members to foster communications between members, and (eventually) a Discussion Room to share insights on current criminal justice issues.
