Society for Police and Criminal Psychology

The Society for Police and Criminal Psychology (SPCP) is an eclectic organization that encourages the scientific study of the criminal justice system and the application of scientific knowledge to problems in criminal justice. It focuses on the law enforcement, the judicial, and the corrections elements in criminal justice. Members of the Society examine and study the full range of human behaviors, motivations, and actions within the framework of the criminal justice system, including causation of crime, victimization, and organizational influences. Consequently, it encourages input from psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, lawyers, police officers, corrections personnel, and any other profession having a concern for the criminal justice system.
