Since 1968, the New Jersey Association of Criminal Justice Educators (NJACJE) has been reaching out to academicians in criminal justice and related fields in a effort to enhancethe quality of undergraduate and graduate education in the discipline. The organization was established during the early years of the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA) as the Council of Educational Institutions for Law Enforcement (CEILE). It was formed with the support of the state's Chancellor of Higher Education to develop a Master Plan for Higher Education in Criminal Justice. One of the organizational goals was to function as liaison between the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice (the major funding agencyinthe state for LEAA), and the rapidlymultiplying Police Science Programs that began to develop. The Council met monthly over the years to discuss issues related to criminal justice education and to plan and sponsor numerous symposia, seminars, and workshops on various criminal justice issues. During the 1970's, CEILE affiliated with the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences and represented the state's criminal justice educators at their meetings.

In 1990, in response to dramatic shifts in criminal justice education, the Council members voted to change the organization's name and its Constitution and By-Laws to more accurately reflect its current expanded mission:

Membership in the NJACJE is open to full-time and part-time faculty, representatives of Criminal Justice agencies, and students.
