Welcome to the Ohio Identification Officers Association Website!

Photo of Michael WisniewskiWell, the year is now over halfway gone and its summer, that means our Ohio Identification Officers Association (OIO) fall conference is right around the corner and I think we have another great conference planned this year. I and a few other board members will be attending the International Association for Identification-IAI (theiai.org) 100th Anniversary conference the first week in August in Sacramento, California. As many of you know, we and the city of Cincinnati will be hosting this first class International conference next year! I highly suggest you become members of the IAI if you already are not and take advantage of the publications, training, and worldwide professional relationships this organization can bring you.

Our Conference Committee assures me all is ready for this year's OIO yearly educational and training conference as they have tirelessly prepared for during their personal time. I believe they have put together informative, educational, and entertaining presentations at this one of a kind location. We will be together September 9th -11th, at the Holiday Inn French Quarter Perrysburg, Ohio, with Tuesday evening registration and Presidents reception. (Click on the Annual Conference Tab for more information.) Registration is now Open! Be sure to reserve your rooms today and I hope to see you all there!

If you have any payment questions, please contact Treasurer Joe Masilonis (OIO Board members).

Once again I would like to thank all of our membership and many associates within the forensic community, in supporting all we do. As with every year, we will be voting in a new board member at this year's membership meeting that will take place this year on Wednesday at the conference. Please attend and get involved in YOUR organization and help maintain Ohio's excellence in the forensic community.

We will be selling our newly minted coins at this year's conference with a discounted price for members vs. non-members (Extra incentive to be a member) plus we have a new batch of our Black t-shirts as well as Sweatshirts (NEW).

As always, I would like to thank you all for what you do for our Nation and communities. It is still a difficult time for all law enforcement, please stay safe in all you do and look out for your fellow officers and crime scene professionals.

Protect and Serve, Collect and Preserve.

Best Wishes,

Michael Wisniewski
President OIO, 2015
