Highlights from the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police Winter Conference

Aftermath is on the road this spring! We’ve already visited conferences in California, Florida, Wisconsin, and Michigan, just to name a few! Last week, Aftermath visited the Virginia Association of Chiefs of Police Winter Conference to share information on biohazard cleanup. The VACP is a charitable organization that encourages the professional development of law enforcement in the state of Virginia. According to the Association’s website, the group aims to assist members in “the prevention of crime, detection of crime and the apprehension of those responsible for the commission of crimes” and to promote through education and training the highest degree of professionalism among the state’s law enforcement agencies.

Questions From the Audience

Mike Webster, the senior Mike described the show as “…very good and very busy.” The attendees were engaging and interested in the vendors, and the energy was high. One of the most common questions asked at the conference concerned whether home owners insurance covers cleanup for families and victims of violence. This is a common, yet important question we routinely receive from both law enforcement as well as customers. The short answer is this: many insurance companies are aware of the benefits of professional biohazard cleaning. Aftermath’s Case Managers work directly with your insurance company to ensure you receive the best care and quality of service available. Furthermore, our mission to educate insurance adjusters and other professionals passes on an added benefit to our customers. Check with your carrier to ensure you are covered. And if you’re employed in the field of insurance, visit our special informational page.

While at the conference, Mike also told attendees about Aftermath’s Spring PPE Giveaway, open to all members of law enforcement. He even gave away 2 kits with 5.11 bags at the event! The winners were Captain Ferguson of the Colonial Heights PD and Chief Jenkins of Culpeper PD. Attendees also picked up other goodies, including stress relief squeeze toys, magnets, and water bottles.
