KDIAI members come mostly from Kansas Law Enforcement Agencies (police departments and sheriff offices), but we do have some from forensic laboratories, coroner's offices, and from forensic programs at colleges in Kansas. These members are involved in investigating crimes, investigating crime scenes, evidence processing, and/or managing evidence. KDIAI members are detectives, investigators, police officers, sheriff's deputies, evidence technicians, crime scene investigators, death investigators, forensic scientists, instructors, and forensic students.
All are engaged in some aspect of forensic investigations either actively or in support of the investigation (or instructing or learning forensic science).
