Since 1976, the Academy of Criminal Justice Science (ACJS) recognized Alpha Phi
Sigma as the Criminal Justice Honor Society. Since 1978, Alpha Phi Sigma has
held its national conference in conjunction with the annual ACJS meeting. The
Academy's continued support of Alpha Phi Sigma serves to enhance The Society’s
purpose - the recognition of scholarly achievement in the field of criminal
justice. Next year’s meeting, held in March 2011, will be in Toronto, Canada.
The official publication of Alpha Phi Sigma is The Docket. It is published three
times a year, and is a general-interest publication containing
