The New Jersey State Police Homicide Unit, the New Jersey Homicide Investigator’s Association, and the Princeton University Department of Public Safety cordially invite you to participate in our 25th Annual Advanced Homicide Investigation Conference. The conference will be held on the campus of Princeton University.
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/child abduction homicide, behavioral analysis, media relations, homicidal drowning, crime scene reconstruction, blood pattern analysis & leadership, 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.
