New Alpha Phi Sigma Charter at UHV

October 20, 2012 Leave a comment

As a recently inducted member of the Eta Theta chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma, the National Criminal Justice Honor Society, I was pleased to learn about the approval of a new chapter at the University of Houston-Victoria this past June. Being a member of the society provides a number of benefits and opportunities to students pursuing careers or further study in the field of criminal justice. Not only does it offer a way for students to work together and promote academic excellence; it also functions as a forum to hear from speakers currently working in law enforcement discussing current developments in the field.

Alpha Phi Sigma was founded at Washington State University in 1942 and was recognized as the national criminal justice honor society by the Executive Board of the Academy of Criminal Justice Societies in Dallas, Texas in 1976. As a Texan, Alpha Phi Sigma member, and law enforcement veteran, I am certain that students at the University of Houston-Victoria will benefit greatly from their involvement in the new chapter.
