When & Where
Det. Lt. M.C. Williams
Colorado State Investigators’ Association was formed in 1992. Prior to that, a handful of state investigators, federal agents and local police and sheriffs’ investigators met informally to develop an information sharing and network. As they grew concerned with the lack of training available at a reasonable cost, especially with the legislative demise of the Colorado Law Enforcement Training Academy (CLETA), the idea for a more formal entity to facilitate that training grew.
In April 1992, the group drafted a constitution and its first set of bylaws and formally incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation called the Colorado State Investigators’ Association, Inc. (CSIA).
The purpose of the CSIA, as outlined in its constitution and bylaws, is:
- To establish and maintain a closer association between all investigators and investigative units of Colorado state government and local law enforcement agencies.
- To provide more effective communication between such offices.
- To develop ways and means of improving investigative techniques.
- To provide quality, low cost training for personnel in such units and in local law enforcement agencies.
