CHIA MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the California Homicide Investigators Association (CHIA) is to provide investigative support, training and networking opportunities to homicide investigators, prosecutors and death investigation professionals throughout the Western United States.
The "cornerstone" of our Association is our annual training conference that now attracts upwards of 800 homicide detectives, coroner investigators, crime scene technicians and prosecutors from across the nation. During this three-day event, the participants attend notable case presentations and training seminars. In addition, the conference provides a fertile environment for networking, individual case evaluations and discussions regarding the latest investigative techniques and technologies with some of the top investigators and prosecutors in the country.
