Death Investigation is all we do !  Many training agencies are well rounded and can fulfill the training needs in nearly every category of public policing and investigation.  At DITA we concentrate on death investigation and everything surrounding those investigations.  By becoming hyper-focused in this field we are better able to provide  intense and  specific training you and your investigators need.

Investigating a death is one of the most significant and highly charged investigations any investigator can become involved with. The public, in general, and family members in particular, expect a thorough and professional investigation into any death. In the case of homicide, successful identification, apprehension and prosecution of the offender, demands the assignment of skilled personnel.

The Death Investigation Training Academy is designed to develop the skills of new, as well as experienced, investigators by providing students with the information needed to ensure that all investigative procedures of the 21st century have been utilized.

The Death Investigation Training Academy was founded to play an  integral role in the death investigation community.  The need for quality, accredited training is in short supply and high demand. Using a combination of class room training, live on site scenario exercises and web based training, the Death Investigation Training Academy is filling the need of 21st century investigators.
