After covering the private investigator community of Denver and the Rocky Mountain Region for half a decade, I will be moving on. February 29th will be my last day as the Denver Private Investigator Blogger. It has been an inspiration and an honor to serve the Colorado private detective community and legal investigator industry for over five years.
Whether your niche is defense Law and/or defense law investigations or process service you are a vital part of Colorado's legal industry and before I head into the wide blue yonder (more of an overcast snow grey yonder given the last week's Denver metro weather, I wanted my penultimate post to provide a list of training and legal investigation enrichment opportunities to get you through spring and summer 2020.
For starters, Mayor Michael Hancock will host three of the Central Park Five this Saturday, February 22nd at the Colorado Convention Center. Watching Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, and Raymond Santana interviewed by Denver's Mayor Hancock is a can't miss opportunity for anyone working in legal investigation and legal defense industry with an interest in systemic bias and social injustice. Especially if you watched and were moved by the award winning Netflix series, When They See Us.

On Wednesday, March 4th 2020 at 6:00 PM, MST the Hilton Inverness at 200 Inverness Drive W, Englewood the Professional Private Investigator Association of Colorado (PPIAC) will host a training event titled, "Virtual Machines for PIs in OSINT Investigations" for Linux pros as well as Linux newbies wanting to learn more about open source intelligence. The instructors are from Digital Silence and you can learn more about the event as well as the PPIAC on their website. There will also be training and professional development events in early April.
Finally, if you're looking to sharpen you Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) smarts, the State of Colorado will be hosting free workshops through the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) this summer and fall in the Denver, Pueblo and Grand Junction. Workshops will include crime scene photographing, crime scene diagramming, mechanics of injury (sharp force, blunt force), impression evidence (footwear, tire) and more. The training time will span a total of 24 hours. Visit the CBI website for more information.
