If you missed the Mississippi Division of the International Association for Identification (MDIAI) 2017 Annual Conference, you missed a smashing good training session! We partnered with the Forensic Student Society (FSS) at The University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. The topic this year was from Crime Scene to Courtroom and began with Dr. Laura Pettler teaching Victim Centered Death Investigation Methodology and ended with Jamie Bush, CLPE, covering Courtroom Testimony. Along the way Crime Scene Photography, Crime Scene Reconstruction, the Collection/Documentation of Latent Prints, the Collection of Biological Samples, Interviewing /Interrogation Techniques, and Challenges in Forensic Identification, were all discussed. With amazing vendors and sponsors we were able to provide the tools our attendees need to be more successful in their careers. As an organization, we strive to keep progressing each year to cover relevant topics of training at our annual conferences, make sure you don’t miss our next one!
