We are pleased to invite you to attend the 2004 AAPS Annual Conference to be held at Sam Houston State University at Huntsville, Texas from August 8 through August 12.
AAPS Annual Conference is an established international forum for the presentation and critical discussion of research findings and applications by academics and practitioners.
Participants from the fields of law enforcement, private security, crime, and victimization gather at this conference to exchange their up-to-date research results with a goal to advance police/security practice and research. The theme for the conference this year is “Policing the World: Asian Perspectives.” Papers introducing the criminal justice systems and discussing issues related to individual countries and regions are welcome.
These panels will be invaluable for faculty who teach comparative criminal justice systems. They also provide a rare opportunity for criminal justice professionals whose work involves cross-cultural interactions with counterparts in the international arena.
We hope to provide a forum full of academic challenges while lavishing you with rustic joys of southern hospitality in Huntsville. Tours of the Texas Wall Unit, museums, Bush Library, NASA, and Houston Police Department will be available. The academic program is scheduled so that recreational and social events can be enjoyed without affecting your participation in the conference. Please come and join your colleagues in lively research discussions followed by friendly social gatherings and extraordinary site visits.
We look forward to seeing you at the conference.

Chairperson, the AAPS 2004 Organizing Committee
Chair and Professor, Department of Criminal Justice
