THE ESTABLISHMENT OF
ASSOCIATION OF CRIMINOLOGY
This proposal seeks to establish The Association of Students of Criminology and Security Studies of Nigeria (ACSSON). The need to establish the Association is engendered by the existence of Criminology and Security Studies as a course of disciple and its relevance is to undertake pragmatic and scientific study of crime and criminals in Nigeria; given the endemic nature of socio-economic crimes, corruption and corrupt individuals and groups in our country presently.
The spate of insecurity in Nigeria presently which has awaken the conscience and attention of every well-meaning Nigerian and the international community to embark on wider consultations, researches and studies with the view to pre-empting and proffering possible solution to the menace; using Criminology and Security Studies (CSS) as a benchmark are also salient reasons and purpose of this Association. This effort however, can be achieved through panoramic and realistic studies of criminal trends, crime statistics, researches, analysis, reporting, prevention, control and punishment via the use of most up-to-date scientific methodologies obtainable in the international community.
The Association further looks forward to bringing together all persons (male and female) involved in the study and practice of Criminology and Security Studies and those who have genuine interest in partnership and sustenance of the ongoing fight against crime, corruption, terrorism and security threats; to learn, share information or experience, for the purpose of promoting criminological awareness and operations in Nigeria and beyond. However, there are no other better ways through which this foregoing aims and objectives can be achieved than through the formation of legitimate Association like the Association of Criminology And Security Studies of Nigeria (ACSSON). There is urgent need to form a united front for the purpose of championing the cause of insecurity in Nigeria; for the interest of peace, security, freedom, human rights, economic growth, good governance, law and order and for the general wellbeing of every Nigerian citizen and aliens. It is worthy of note, to mention that no association like the Association of Criminology And Security Studies of Nigeria (ACSSON) has ever existed in Nigeria and in most African countries, as a scholastic body to undertake thorough and unbiased studies on critical areas like crime and security. The field of criminology involves the study of crime and criminal behavior, how society reacts to crime, as well as ways to prevent crime. Criminology careers include local, state, and federal corrections, criminal investigation, forensic science, law enforcement, private investigation, research and policy studies, and numerous other jobs working for local, state, and federal government agencies. Since the global emergence of the new understanding of the concept of ‘security’ as the only mechanism for propagating global socio-economic prosperity, peace law and order, security is now widely seen as “an all-encompassing condition in which individual citizen lives in freedom, peace and safety, participate fully in the process of governance, enjoy the protection of fundamental rights, have access to resources and the basic necessities of life; and inhabit an environment which is not detrimental to their health and well-being” (South African White Paper on Defence, 1996).
It is a historical realism that crime is as old as the existence of mankind on the surface of the earth. Consequently, crime has become an omnipresent temptation to which all mankind is vulnerable. Nevertheless, there has been a progressive effort deliberately made by every society to combat crime; such effort range from enacting laws, rules and regulations to engaging members of the public including private sector by paying them to give full attention to issues that are incumbent to the collective wellbeing of the society. Such category of people include the military (Army, Navy and Air Force), the police and Para-military organizations like the Nigerian Immigration Services, Nigerian Custom Services, The Nigerian Prison Services, Federal Road Safety Corps, Civil Society Organizations and so on.
The essence of making rules and regulations or formulating policies in any social setting is to guide the conduct of people since any breach of peace or code of conduct, rules and regulations and laws that are put in place to police the affairs of the people is regarded not only as security threat but also seen as that which violets the collective conscience of the entire society.
Moreover, it is noteworthy to state that circumstances have bestowed the need to establish and run the Association of Criminology and Security Studies of Nigeria (ACSSON) on us; particularly scholars in Criminology, Penology, Victimology and other fields of study from Criminal Justice Systems. Many thanks to both Salem University and the National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), the only Federal University in Nigeria that gives full attention to the scientific study and practice of Criminology and Security Studies since its inception in 2002. The advent and adoption of the course into their prospectus have ushered new hope for breeding Criminologists and Security Experts in Nigeria, to emerge and to continue in the quest for providing a lasting solution to all manner of criminal activities, which if not checkmated, would erode all benefits of democracy, social and political values of Nigeria. There is urgent need to build and consolidate a well intentioned organization like ACSSON. This can be achieved by embarking on relentless studies, researches, consultations and joint partnership with local and foreign agencies including NGOs to further tackle the issue of crime and insecurity in our national life.
In facilitating the ongoing efforts of the Nigerian Government under the able leadership of His Excellency Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, who has openly demonstrated his premium interest in security of lives and property in Nigeria, the Association aims at tackling the problems of crimes, criminals, insecurity, terrorism, and other social vices that are inimical to our socio-economic prosperity through the use of public enlightenment machineries. The endemic nature of crime and corruption in all social strata need both scientific and pragmatic approach through collating of crime statistics for both studies and analyses.
The entire members of the Association of Criminology and Security Studies of Nigeria (ACSSON) have adopted this initiative and genuinely affirm their interest to pursue the aims and objectives contained therein. It is therefore very important that all stakeholders particularly in Criminology and security industry including the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) should embrace this initiative; to enable the Association continue with its giant stride in breeding a new crop of Criminologists and intelligence-oriented security personnel, who would continue the fight against crime and security threats inherent in most parts of the country presently. It is expected that this effort if sustained, will further assuage these ugly trends and entrench peace, economic stability, good governance, social justice, law and order and economic prosperity in our society. The organization further seeks partnership with all stakeholders, especially those that frown at crime, corruption and crooked ways of administering social justice across the globe; to identify and work tirelessly with us to achieve the above objectives. This is a clarion call to national service- to serve our fatherland at this critical time!
In view of the above, we wish to draw your attention to the aims and objectives as contained in the body of rules of this noble Association.
