Alpha Phi Sigma is the only criminal justice honor society that is a certified member of the Association of College Honor Societies and affiliated with the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences. Membership benefits include life-time membership, access to scholarships, personal connections with fellow Criminal Justice students, career development opportunities, and professional contacts made through our meetings and national conferences.
