The Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS), a national organization, has co-named one of its awards in honor of Dr. Janice Joseph, Distinguished Professor of Criminal Justice at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey. 
 
The Dorothy Bracey/Janice Joseph Minority and Women New Scholar Award will recognize outstanding academic contributions by new minority and female scholars. The first award will be given at ACJS conference in March 2015 in Orlando, Florida.
 
Dr. Joseph, a resident of Gloucester Township in Camden County, became the 47th president of the organization in 2010. She is the first person of African ancestry and first foreign-born person to be elected to the position. Over time, she has served ACJS in several capacities. She is presently ACJS United Nations NGO representative and is the current editor of the Journal of Ethnicity in Criminal Justice, which is sponsored by the Minorities and Women Section of ACJS. 
 
Dr. Joseph organized an ACJS panel for the United Nations Crime Congress, 2010 in Salvador, Brazil. She was twice elected trustee-at-large and chair of the Minorities and Women Section of ACJS. She also received the Founder’s Award for her outstanding contributions to criminal justice education and to ACJS.  
 
I am humbled and honored by this recognition. This is one of the greatest honors of my career,” said Dr. Joseph. “ACJS has been invaluable to my professional development and growth in the field of criminal justice. I sincerely thank ACJS for this honor.”
 
Dorothy Bracey, for whom the award is co-named, was the first female president of ACJS in 1984-1985.  She also served as chair of the Department of Anthropology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.
