It was crime time at Indiana State University Monday afternoon, but now one was leaving in hand-cuffs.

The school is hosting the International Crime, Media and Popular Culture Conference.
   
The three day event features dozens of presenters, and panel discussions, on topics like gangs, crime in popular media and recording police officers.
   
Hundreds of students and guests from from across the globe attended the event, helping expand the schools reach, and curriculum.

"There is so much that's left out that impacts public perception, which also impacts public policy, law, what have you. So it's important for us as criminologist and other disciplines to explore how the media can impact those processes," said Dr. Franklin Wilson, of Indiana State University.  "Start to question what it is they view on television, and what they choose to watch on television, and how that impacts their perceptions of laws, crimes, and what have you."

This was the fifth year for the conference, it runs through Wednesday.
