Continuing Education Credits. Conference attendees may also earn credit for continuing education (CEUs) by paying an additional $40 fee when registering for the conference. Typically, approximately 12-13 CEUs have been available at each in-person conference. Since this is our first online conference, it is unclear at this time how many CEUs will be available.
Special Agency Rate. Does your agency want to participate as a team? Perhaps you would like to assemble a group in a meeting room and display the conference to the whole team using a single computer connection. Please contact JoAnne Brewster (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss a special conference rate. We will need to know how many people will participate and how many connections will be needed.
Notes. Conference capacity is limited--Register soon to assure your spot. For best rates, register by September 30. Differing from our tradition, to keep the cost of this event very low, participants in this online conference will not receive complimentary dues for the following year.
The Society for Police & Criminal Psychology supports the pursuit of academic excellence by encouraging the submission of posters by current students at the undergraduate, masters, or doctoral level. The Michael Serafino Award is given annually to the best student poster presented at our yearly conference. Posters are judged on scholarship, contribution to the fields of police and public safety psychology or criminal justice, and the quality of the poster presentation. This award is accompanied by a cash honorarium.
The Society sponsors an annual conference held in the fall of each year at varying locations throughout the United States. The conference focuses on the interface between criminal justice system and the behavioral sciences. It includes presentations on international perspectives in policing, specialized police procedures and techniques, personnel issues in criminal justice agencies, the law, litigation issues, inmate populations, probation and parole, and other issues affecting individuals in the criminal justice system.
ACCOP was a unique opportunity to meet and exchange information with experts in the fields of law enforcement, criminal and operations psychology, and behavioral sciences from both Asia and the West. More information
