As the newly elected President of the Homicide Investigators of Texas I would like to take a minute to express how great it was to see the number of attendees that came to the 2022 conference that was held at the Drury Inn Plaza Hotel in San Antonio, Texas on March 28th through the 30th. This year we had almost 200 attendees and seen a huge number of new faces. I would like to thank all the board members and the committee members that worked so hard to make the conference a huge success. I would also like to thank Brian Harris, who is our Training Coordinator, for working so hard to find us the quality of trainers that he does year after year. The board members and training coordinator have already been discussing topics for the upcoming 2023 Homicide Investigators Conference to be held on March 20 through March 23 in 2023 at the Drury Plaza Motel in San Antonio, Texas. Our goal is to provide the best training possible and continue to increase the number of attendees year after year. May God watch over all of us and protect the brothers, sisters and families of Blue throughout this upcoming year. I pray that each one that puts the uniform on every day returns home to their families after each tour of duty.
