The American Society of Criminology (ASC) is an organization focused on research, teaching, criminal justice, and the law. Measuring crime over time and studying the effects of legislation, as well as judicial and police review, are some of the major focuses of the ASC.
Members of the organization include professionals in various fields related to criminal justice, such as law enforcement personnel and social workers.
The society offers four types of membership. In its active member membership, dues are determined according to the member’s annual salary. There are also retiree and student memberships. Membership includes subscriptions to ASC’s electronic publications.
There is an option for in-person meetings at ASC’s annual conference, which takes place every November. The conferences provide members with the opportunity to develop skills, discover employment opportunities, and professionally connect with other members.
