Pacific Northwest Association of Investigators 2019 Winter Training Conference

Another successful training event was held this past week at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission in Burien, WA!

Gordon Mitchell is presenting on cellular telephone forensics.

Sandra Robb is speaking about Federal and State tax laws and the jeopardy of an audit.

It was a fast-paced day beginning with attendees learning about the latest in cellular telephone forensics from Gordon Mitchell of Future Focus, Inc.

Sandra Robb of Capital Accounting provided updates on the latest Federal and State tax laws, and things we all can do to mitigator or prevent those unintended audits. Sandra is also PNAIs accountant.

The lunch networking session was led by Martin Radley of Radstone Investigations and Consulting.  Attendees introduced themselves and spoke of the challenges they expected this coming year and how they were going to manage or overcome them.  A very informative topic!

After lunch, effective web design and the myths of Search Engine Optimization were explained in detail by Marty Longe from Umbrella Graphics, the PNAI website designer.

And the last presentation of the day was on Surveillance Best Practices, paneled by PNAI members Mike Canaan from Trident Investigative Service, Keith Shores from Olympic Tactical and Investigations, and Andy Holmes from Holmes Legal Investigations.  Audience participation was high during this presentation, with lots of questions and answers provided.  The exchanges were so many that the program was not completed before the end of the day. Attendees asked that panel to reconvene at the next conference to complete the presentation, which we will do.

We are excited to report that our attendance from the last training event, with attendee responses being overwhelmingly positive!  We expect an even greater turnout at the next training event.

Stay tuned!  Keith Shores, our Education Committee Chair will be announcing the dates of our next conference scheduled for this early Fall.
