Dear Prospective Members,
As the Director of Communications for OFIA, I am very pleased to share with you an exciting opportunity for your police service. For decades prior to the formation of OFIA, Forensic Investigators representing Ontario Police Services and associated government agencies, met informally to discuss forensic investigative work with the goal of promoting investigative excellence in Ontario as it relates to the forensic discipline. In 2015 these members proposed the formation of OFIA and through a collaborative effort OFIA was formally launched at the annual meeting of Ontario Forensic Investigators on November 27, 2016.
In the brief time OFIA has been in existence, we have seen tremendous growth of our association as well as benefit to the members. OFIA now has representation from 24 police services and government agencies across Ontario. Our Association is committed to professional collaboration to enhance investigative excellence within the field of forensic identification services in the Province of Ontario.
On behalf of the OFIA Executive, I am very excited to extend an invitation to you to join our team and enjoy the many benefits of membership including:
● Increased opportunities to share skills, knowledge and experience
● Create an environment of collaboration among partners
● Identify and react to universal forensic challenges
● Enhance the expertise of forensic investigators ● Increased opportunities to standardize forensic best practices in Ontario
● Member access to www.OFIA.ca
● Timely access to information regarding OFIA events including the 2018_Conference at DoubleTree Fallsview Resort, in beautiful Niagara Falls.
Should you wish to join Ontario’s fastest growing forensic professional network, please visit www.ofia.ca/membership for details. While you’re at it, I strongly encourage you to take a moment and peruse our 2018 Conference link. This year’s conference promises to be one you won’t want to miss. Your agency does not need to be a member of OFIA to register for the conference.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share all of this exciting news, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you require any additional information.
