What is IAATI?
The International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) was formed in the United States in 1952 in order to improve communication and coordination among professional auto theft investigators. It has grown to over 3,600 members representing over 35 countries and includes representatives of law enforcement agencies, as well as many others with a legitimate interest in auto theft investigation, prevention and education.
IAATI recognises that our most effective weapon to combat the crime of auto theft is cooperation. IAATI has actively pursued this by providing its members with an array of experience, training and resources in areas such as technical developments, trends, intelligence information and investigative assistance. Through IAATI we are able to pool our resources in order to achieve our common interests, and better serve our communities. IAATI is dedicated to developing and encouraging the highest professional standards of conduct among auto theft investigators, while providing an infrastructure for those dedicated individuals to broaden their knowledge and develop the crucial business networks with local and international colleagues.
IAATI consists of five US based chapters and five international branches including the Australasian Branch. Visit the web sites of the chapters and branches by using the links below.
