27th Annual Advanced Homicide Investigation Conference

The New Jersey State Police Major Crime Unit and the New Jersey Homicide Investigator’s Association cordially invite you to participate in our 27th Annual Advanced Homicide Investigation Conference. The conference will be held at the Claridge Hotel, located at 123 South Indiana Avenue, Atlantic City, NJ.

The conference is designed to meet the needs of investigators and supervisors tasked with the investigation of homicides, suicides and unnatural deaths. Topics of discussion include: interview and interrogation, child abduction/pediatric death investigation, behavioral analysis, sexual deviant homicides, crime scene reconstruction, blood pattern analysis, as well as major case studies.

All attendees will receive a comprehensive notebook containing writings and information supplied by the speakers, as well as a class roster. In addition, attendees will have ample opportunity to discuss their own cases with investigators from across the United States and several foreign nations. We have designed the conference to provide social activities which facilitate networking and small group discussions between the attendees.

We sincerely hope a representative from your agency can join us in Princeton this year for a conference that will be educational, practical, and a pleasure to attend.
