2014 Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) conference recap
The ACJS held its 51st annual meeting in mid-February this year in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Almost all of our department’s faculty and several graduate and undergraduate students attended. Over 350 events were planned for the conference, including academic panel presentations, roundtables, speakers, poster presentations, tours of the Eastern State Penitentiary and the Graterford Prison, and ride-alongs with the local police. The Criminal Justice Honor Society, Alpha Phi Sigma, also held their national meeting in tandem with ACJS. Students and faculty presented at academic panels and attended and participated in many other events. Below are some pictures from the week-long conference.
