The Louisiana Division of the International Association for Identification was formed to associate persons actively engaged in the profession of Forensic Identification / Investigation and Scientific Examination of physical evidence. Thus, the profession and all of its divisions may be standardized effectively and scientifically practiced. The Association’s objective is to encourage research,  keep members apprised of the latest techniques and discoveries,  and to utilize the Association members’ collective wisdom to advance the profession of Forensic Identification and Crime Detection.


Dates have been set for the 75th Conference – JUNE 9th – 11th – in Baton Rouge.  Classes and vendors will be at LSP Training Academy.  Hotel details are still being worked out, so stay tuned for more information.
