Welcome to the Ohio Identification Officers Association
The Ohio Identification Officers Association strives to be a professional association for those engaged in investigation, forensic identification and scientific examination of physical evidence.
Welcome to the Ohio Identification Officers Association Website!
Our organization began in February of 1948 with only 80 members in attendance. Currently we have 350 members and we continue to receive applications for membership on a daily basis.
The Ohio Identification Officers Association (OIO) along with the IAI work together to define qualifications and standards for forensic practices, techniques, research, development and awarding certifications in many disciplines, while furthering professional and scientific advancements in the identification field.
The OIO hosts a yearly educational and training conference, this year it will be on September 10th -12th, where professional networking, workshops and lectures take place. (Click on the Annual Conference Tab for more information.) I hope to see and meet many of you there. I encourage each of you, to get involved in the OIO, for we all can continue to grow professionally and personally.
