Past Educational Conferences
The 2022 Annual Educational Conference was held on April 12th-13th at the Bluemont Hotel in Manhattan, Kansas.
The conference title was "Crime Scene Preservation and Documentation". We had 105 in attendance, six vendors, and several wonderful speakers.
Lectures included a case presentation from both CSI and Attorney perspectives of the "She's a Pistol" case in Johnson County, scene preservation, photography composition, sketching and diagramming, evidence collection and packaging, and case presentations from the Riley County Attorney's Office.
Thank you to all of the presenters, vendors/sponsors, and the 2021 KDIAI Board for making it another successful conference!
The 2020/2021 Spring Educational Conference was held on April 13th-14th virtually using Accelevents.
The conference title was "Sexual Assault Investigations", where the focus was on different aspects of a sexual assault - from detectives and investigators, crime scene investigators, victim and suspect processing, forensic scientists, and victim advocacy.
Presentations included investigating sexual assaults and non-fatal strangulations, specialized injury photography, sexual assault kits, crime scene and suspect processing, SANE/SART process, victim advocacy, and a case presentation.
Thank you to all of the presenters, we could not have had a successful conference without you!
