Following the San Diego DNA and Genealogy Summit in March this year, IHIA is returning to the East Coast with a similar concept to bring FIGG experts and stakeholders alike for a mutual knowledge exchange - investigators, prosecutors, forensic scientists, public and private labs with FIGG capabilities, and privacy experts.

Additionally, attendees will hear from crime victims on the importance of having FIGG as an available and economic resource to the criminal justice community.

*This training summit is for law enforcement officials and those working directly with law enforcement.  Those without governmental contact information will be vetted by the IHIA board to determine eligibility.  This includes Genetic Genealogists, who are not employed by law enforcement agencies.  Genealogists must work directly with law enforcement and must be able to provide a law enforcement contact as a reference.  If you have questions, please email Steve Lewis.  

**Department credentials will be required at check-in.**

The cost is $375.00, which includes all training materials, an IHIA membership, and a Social Networking Event.

Active IHIA members pay $325 for the course!
