This conference will provide a wealth of information to the various law enforcement agencies and community, also giving all in attendance the opportunity to network with colleagues.
The CHIA is a non-profit organization that was formed in the late 1960’s when homicide detectives from San Francisco and Los Angeles met over dinner to discuss the "Zodiac Killer" investigation. This simple dinner gathering grew into an annual conference that now attracts over 600 homicide detectives, coroner investigators, and prosecutors from around the nation.
The Media is welcomed to attend the opening ceremonies and welcome messages at this grand event.
