A Message From Our President

Thank you for visiting the California Sexual Assault Investigators Association web page. We are dedicated to providing high-quality training in all areas of sexual assault investigation and advocate for effective relationships between all disciplines working together throughout California.
Our association has been providing training and resources for over 40 years and we look forward to what is ahead for 2020! Our upcoming Spring Conference will be held at the beautiful Cliffs Hotel and Spa in Shell Beach, March 10-13, 2020, where attendees will receive great training, delicious food, and networking opportunities. The beautiful views and new friendships are a great way to recharge!
Throughout the year, we also offer one-day trainings on a variety of topics to better equip you for your complex investigations. Let us know if there is a specific topic you would like us to present and bring to your area by emailing us. We are here for you!
We understand how difficult these investigations are and recognize the dedication, we know comes with personal sacrifices, to serve your respective communities. What you do matters and does not go unnoticed.
On behalf of the Board of Directors, thank you for your service.

Respectfully,
Sabrina M. Ostberg
President, CSAIA
