The theme of the 2019 AAPS conference, Progression and Challenges in Modern Policing,”
encourages an exchange of visions and experiences between researchers and practitioners in the
fields of policing, criminology, and criminal justice. The keynote speeches will focus on how the use
of different technologies (e.g., AI, big data analytics, CCTV, body-worn cameras, mobile technology)
in law enforcement affects crime prevention and investigation, and what impact digital policing may
have on democracy.
But we encourage submission of papers on any topics that tackle policing,
criminal justice, or criminology issues.

The registration fee for the conference is $350 US dollars, which includes 3 days hotel
accommodations (Dec 15-17), meals during the conference, transportations between the hotel and
