The Wisconsin Association of Homicide Investigators (WAHI) held their annual training conference April 18-20th. Aftermath was there to share in the occasion. The conference was hosted in Koehler, Wisconsin, at the American Club.
Happenings at the Homicide Investigators Conference
In addition to a vendor hall, the three day training conference featured speakers and seminars on well-known cases. Featured this year were cases like the Boston Bombing and the Aurora Movie Theater shooting. Topics covered everything from drug investigations to handling active shooter situations. Members of the WAHI Cold Case Division were also present throughout the event, offering their expertise to peers.
WAHI members include local, state and federal law enforcement officers, coroners, and medical examiners. Over 200 professionals attended this year’s conference. Attendees visited from all across the US, including Washington, Massachusetts, and Colorado.
Setting the Stage In the Vendor Hall
Between seminars and networking events, many conference goers stopped by the Aftermath booth to learn more about biohazard cleanup. Tony Cusinato, Senior Manager of Law Enforcement Relations, answered questions and distributed material. Additionally, several detectives shared stories of their own experiences with Aftermath.
Tony also raffled off a 5.11 Tactical bag and PPE Kit. The winner was Detective Dana Stoner of the Tremplo County Sheriff’s Office in Whitehall, WI. Other vendors also sponsored giveaways, and there was a charity fundraiser for an officer who was killed recently in the line of duty.
