As the holidays approach and the conference season draws to a close, Aftermath reviews the last events of 2016. We’ve enjoyed meeting so many of you this year – from respected officers and detectives in law enforcement, to funeral directors and professionals in the insurance industry. In the past months, we’ve visited all corners of the nation; big city or small town, from Florida to California and everywhere in between, we’re proud to assist your community.
This year was our first at the North Carolina Homicide Investigators Association Conference (NCHIA), hosted by the Carolina Beach Police Department. Aftermath’s Mike Webster was welcomed by detectives from all over the state. At the Aftermath booth, attendees inquired about office locations and the company’s response time.
As a thank you to the officers, Mike held two drawings for Aftermath PPE kits. The winners were Lieutenant Shannon Coates of Reidsville Police Department and Detective Kelly Loiacono of the Asheville Police Department (see photo).
While not visiting with vendors or attending sessions at the conference, detectives at the low-key event enjoyed meals at nearby restaurants and hosted a late night karoke contest in the hospitality room.
Meanwhile in the Midwest, Aftermath’s Senior Manager of Law Enforcement Relations, Tony Cuisanato, attended a meeting of the Milwaukee County Medical Examiners, held at the Harley Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. According to the ME’s website, “the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office is the medicolegal death investigation entity serving Milwaukee County, a mixed urban and suburban jurisdiction, including Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and 18 surrounding municipal units.”
Tony had only recently heard about this conference when he attended the Wisconsin Coroners Conference the week before, but the company received a great reception from attendees. Because of Milwaukee’s proximity to the Chicagoland area, many were already aware of Aftermath and the services we provide. Some attendees spoke highly of their own past experiences with the company. Guests were interested in learning about Aftermath’s payment options and response times. While at the event, Tony gave away a 5-11 tactical bag with a PPE kit. The winner (pictured) was Faye Aschenbach from the Sheboygan County Coroner’s Office.
What’s Next For Aftermath
Though there are just a few weeks left in 2016, we still have some excitement in store.
