    Dear Fellow Law Enforcement,


    Over the years, the International Latino Gang Investigators Association has sought to make the highest quality training available to the law enforcement community.


    Since 2009, the continued support and patronage of Southern California’s police officers, correctional personnel, prosecutors and other law enforcement professionals has helped to make the ILGIA’s Annual Inland Empire Gang Symposium one of the premiere law enforcement training events on the west  coast. As we prepare for the 6th Annual Inland Empire Gang  Symposium, we understand that it is our turn to
    support you, the law enforcement community.

    With many departments eliminating training budgets and individual officers, who already find their salaries stretched, being forced to fund their own training if they wish to better themselves, the ILGIA would like to do our part to support you just as you have supported us year after year. As such,  ILGIA has  maintained a reduced registration fee for the 6th A Annual Inland Empire Symposium to $100.00 per person.

    Furthermore, any department registering four employees will receive a fifth registration at no charge.

    The goal of the ILGIA is and has always been to insure that law enforcement officers and correctional personnel have access to the highest quality training available so they
    remain prepared to deal with the continued threat of Latino gangs and organized crime. We hope that in these difficult times our gesture of support will help.

    Thank you and be safe.


    Respectfully,
    The I.L.G.I.A. Board of Directors

    KEYNOTE SPEAKERS:

    Mark L. Gestring, M.D., F.A.C.S., Director of Adult Trauma at the Strong Regional Trauma Center, and Assistant Professor of Surgery and Emergency Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center. 
    Dr. Mark Gestring serves as the Medical Director of the Kessler Trauma Center in Rochester New York where he holds the rank of Associate Professor of Surgery, Emergency Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of Rochester School of Medicine. Dr. Gestring was instrumental in the development of an aggressive, hospital-based, violence intervention program aimed at youths under the age of 18 who have been victimized by violent crime. This program successfully incorporates a wide range of hospital, law-enforcement and community resources in an effort to identify and address individualized risk factors and behaviors known to escalate the cycle of violence. Although developed in Rochester, NY, this program is designed to be universal in any hospital and trauma center setting.
