FROM THE PRESIDENT
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
My name is Doug Hurley and I am your President of the INOA. I have been with the INOA since 2004 and have held the past positions of Secretary and Director-At-Large. I would like to welcome you to our website and give you a bit of background of who we are.
The INOA was formed in 2004 when members of state and local law enforcement personnel collaborated to put together an association which would bring the most current and relevant training to Iowa. With the assistance of the Association of Oklahoma Narcotics Enforcers and the Illinois Narcotics Officers' Association, the INOA sent representatives to learn how other associations were operating. The INOA utilized their by-laws and conference strategies to put together our first conference.
I still can’t believe starting an association in 2004 and have around 100 attendees has brought us to our 15th Annual Conference where 300 people will be in attendance. A number of our instructors are subject matter experts in various fields of law enforcement; we do a yearly legal update; and we have regional case overviews which highlight cases throughout the state of Iowa. As I write this, planning for the 2019 Conference is about to wrap up. We will be bringing the most up-to-date information from many instructors throughout the U.S. If you are interested in attending, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will discuss the conference agenda. Due to the nature of our association, we do not post our conference agenda or instructor information online.
Our goal is to make the conference training available to all law enforcement officers regardless of their duty assignments. Each year, an Executive Board is chosen by the membership and those board members are responsible for the day-to-day operations, as well as planning the annual conference. Our organization has become stronger with each passing year adding 13 board volunteers to this year’s conference. With their assistance we will have a conference which runs more efficiently.
Our intent is to keep this website updated with current events, training announcements and a Members Only section, which will have the latest trends, updates and regional case highlights. If you have any questions about our organization I urge you to reach out to a Regional Director in your area or myself.
In closing, the INOA is currently scheduling regional training events to be held in 2019. If you have a specific topic you would like to see in your region, feel free to contact your regional director to set up a training event. So far, 2 search warrant writing classes have been scheduled and a 2 day course on narcotics based financial investigations is being planned, among others.
I hope to see you at one of our upcoming training events or at our yearly conference.
J. Douglas Hurley, President
Iowa Narcotics Officers' Association
