Association for Criminal Justice Research - California

The Association for Criminal Justice Research (California) was formed and incorporated in 1972 by forty criminal justice researchers in California. Members and Past Presidents of the ACJR CA have included law school professors, prosecutors, and judges in California.

Member affiliations include the Attorney General’s Office, California Superior Court of Orange County, and the District Attorney’s Office in Orange County. No criminal defense attorneys in California are highlighted on the ACJR CA website.

Members include both analysts and providers focused on criminal justice issues in California from a research perspective. Members work in academia, the private sector, non-profit agencies, and in local, state and federal government. The ACJR CA promotes a data-based, analytical approach for the delivery of services within the criminal justice system.

The mission of the organization is to "stimulate and improve research on crime, delinquency, and the criminal justice process. It seeks to encourage cooperative relations among persons engaged or interested in research in the criminal justice area for scientific purposes."

For the past 30 years, ACJR CA has two conferences each year. One of the ACJRCA conferences is held in Northern California in the spring. The other ACJR CA conference is held in the fall in Southern California. The organization also publishes a newsletter on its website.

The Spring Conference 2020 is scheduled for APRIL 2-3, 2020 at the California Endowment Center in Oakland with the Waterfront Hotel as the conference hotel.
