Short description:
The aims and objectives of the Society are to create a multi-disciplinary forum to serve the nation through earnest efforts of dissemination of criminological knowledge and field experiences and on the basis of such scholarly and scientific discourses and exchange of knowledge, suggest to the relevant Government organization and legislators the corrective and preventive measures to curb crime and delinquency. The knowledge workers of the Society will honestly assess the criminal tendency in different socio-economic groups of the community and determine value-free, nonpartisan and workable intervention tools, methods and techniques. The Society has a high expectation of support from all law enforcement people and academics, thus bringing practitioners and researchers to a consensus and mutual understanding on certain vital issues. The gap between theory and practice has to be addressed in particular. After the publication and free distribution of its first book, Expanding Criminology of Pakistan, the society is now launching the first of its kind quarterly the Pakistan Journal of Criminology.
