International Symposium


Every year the IACA hosts the Annual IACA Conference in the United States. The international symposium allows members from outside the US, who would normally not be able to attend the annual conference, to benefit from the training sessions and discussions designed to benefit them. This three-day conference includes a broad range of topics for analysts, law enforcement practitioners from all areas of the criminal justice system, and police executives.
