  MDIAI - 2014 Training Conference
Last year the sounds of gun fire echoed through the halls of fourteen schools in the United States. Four school shootings occurred in January of this year alone. These horrific events are becoming an unfortunate reality in America's school systems.
No other incident can affect a law enforcement agency as much as an officer-involved critical incident which includes police shootings, in-custody deaths, and other use of force incidents that result in serious injury or death.
Join us as we explore lessons learned from mass school shooting and officer involved investigations.

• Area command
• Multi-agency coordination
• Implementation requirements established by NIMS.

Who should Attend: Elected or Appointed City and County officials along with Department Heads.
