California Sexual Assault Investigators Association

Providing High-quality training for investigators in the fields of sexual assault

Welcome to the CSAIA

Welcome to the California Sexual Assault Investigators Association (CSAIA) website. The primary purpose of CSAIA is to provide high-quality training in the fields of sexual assault – prevention, detection, investigation, evidence collection and analysis, prosecution, victim services and support, incarceration, and treatment of offenders, offender monitoring, as well as other closely related areas.

This Association exists to promote and increase constructive relationships between investigators throughout the state and nation in order to aid in the rapid dissemination of information, as well as to form contacts and liaisons to further assist in the apprehension of offenders. This is done through effective investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases in order to ensure that victims receive the highest level of service and sensitivity and that offenders procure the maximum measure of the law.

The Association encourages and will actively support legislative changes, which promote the mission of CSAIA.
