President's Message - September/October

Our summer is coming to an end and our executive board are excited about meeting to discuss our potential membership growth later this month. Recently, members of our executive board attended the parent body training seminar conference in Reno, Nevada. It was an event filled week with high quality presentations from various professionals in multiple police/forensic disciplines. Presenters and vendors shared cutting edge forensic technology, case study reviews and provided informative workshops to attendees. The training seminar was a tremendous experience and beneficial to all attendees.

As we head into the fall season, please look for upcoming information on our training seminar - May 18-22, 2020 in Palm Springs, CA. Similar to the parent body conference, attendees will receive world renowned training in police and forensic disciplines. In addition to receiving training, members will have the opportunity to site see the beautiful and majestic Palm Springs city. The executive board is excited to return to this host city and we look forward to your attendance.

Students! Students! Students! As you return back to school, please apply for our William A. Snare scholarship if you meet the criteria. Being awarded this scholarship is a prestigious honor and will be highly beneficial to ones forensic and/or law enforcement career. Please take advantage by applying today to help support your career aspirations.
