ABOUT THE CSAIA
OUR MISSION STATEMENT EXPLAINS OUR PURPOSE AND OUR GOALS.
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.
The CSAIA exists to promote and increase constructive relationships between investigators throughout the state and nation in order to aid the rapid dissemination of information, as well as to form contacts and liaisons to further assist in the apprehension of offenders and the effective investigation and prosecution of sexual assault cases.
The CSAIA advocates effective relationships between investigators and members of related disciplines for the purpose of improving the team approach to cases to assure that victims receive the highest level of service and sensitivity and that offenders procure the maximum measure of the law.
The CSAIA encourages the ongoing development of progressive standards of training and qualifications for sexual assault investigators and members of related disciplines to assure the continuing improvement of effectiveness in the field.
The Association encourages and will actively support legislative changes, which promote the mission of the CSAIA.
2023 CSAIA PRESIDENT
14651 Oxnard St
Van Nuys, CA 91411
I am excited about the upcoming year. It is my honor to serve as the 2023 president of CSAIA. I value this organization and all of its members. I have served on the CSAIA board of Directors for the last four years. I have been so impressed with the dedication and passion for helping victims I have witnessed from the board of directors and CSAIA members.
The role each of you plays in serving victims of sexual violence is amazing. You go above and beyond to fight for justice and provide a voice for many who have been silenced. You do this for others even at your own expense and put your own needs aside. This work can sometimes feel overwhelming, pushing us to our limits and sometimes affecting our well-being. Still, one thing I have seen consistently is the dedication and professionalism of all first responders. I hope each of you know you are seen and appreciated. I am proud of the work each of you do and am honored to be associated with such a wonderful group of people who face such challenges and yet still prevail.
CSAIA continues to provide expert training to support those who seek justice for sexual assault victims. As excited as we are to be back to providing in-person training, we also have embraced being able to offer hybrid and virtual training. This past year we have provided multiple one-day virtual trainings covering important topics we often face, such as mandated reporting, testimony preparation, and strangulation prevention. Your CSAIA Board of Directors does not only focus on training but also advocates for legislation that supports our mission.
This year is an election year for CSAIA so if you are interested in a Board of Directors position stay tuned for election information in the summer/fall.
Stay safe and well.
