As the President of the Homicide Investigators of Texas I would like to take a minute to tell everyone it is getting that time of year when we are finalizing everything to be ready for our Homicide Investigators of Texas 2024 Conference. The Conference will be held at the Drury Inn Plaza Hotel in San Antonio, Texas on March 25th through the 28th. Last year we had an awesome conference with a large number of attendees. We have worked together for the past few months and will continue to work to make this conference successful. I would like to thank all the board members and the Committee members that worked so hard to make the conference a huge success. Our Training Coordinator, Paul Keith has done an amazing job bringing some big speakers to our conference. We will have a couple Homicide case studies, Equivocal Death investigations, Multi-Jurisdictional Homicide Investigations, Crime Scene Interpretation and a presentation on Jeffery Dahmer and Kyle Rittenhouse. I would also like to thank the HIT Secretary, William Fiveash. This position is the hardest position on the HIT Board, and he has worked diligently for us on the Board and every attendee that comes to our conferences. I would also like to encourage the college attending students of our HIT members to put in for the scholarships. We award a scholarship every year. The forms to apply for this scholarship are on our website. Our goal is to keep the cost down for our attendees and to provide the best training possible. May God watch over all of us and protect the brothers, sisters of the family of Blue throughout this upcoming year. I pray that each time that you put on the uniform, you return home to your families after each tour of duty.
