Non-English webinars: 

Español Italiano



Webinars are 1-2 hour long sessions, usually held once a month, via Zoom, that can either be stand-alone topics or a series of topics that connect from one to the next. The sessions can be taken independently, but for a webinar series, the material builds on itself as the year goes on so we encourage people to take the whole series.

Each webinar costs $15 for IACA members, $30 for non-members. However, you may purchase a series pass at a 25% discount which includes all future Tactical Series webinars (the price is pro-rated as the year progresses). If a session is free, it will be noted in the description. All students who participate live will receive a Certificate of Attendance. All IACA members who register for a webinar will receive Continuing Education credits for that session, regardless if they attend live or receive the recording. 

Some (but not all) webinars are recorded and can be viewed by IACA members after 45 days have passed from the original air date.

OSINT Party is a series of fun OSINT (open source intelligence) challenges which help participants test their OSINT skills and learn some new ones! You will work alone or in a team of up to 4 people to answer the various challenges and each answer unlocks new questions. Each correct answer will award points, and the team with the most points at the end of the challenge will win the challenge! At the end of the session, we'll go through all the answers together and you will receive an answers document with OSINT tools and techniques. 

You must register as part of a team, which can range in size from 1 to 4 people. We recommend participating as larger teams to earn the highest number of points. Team members do not need to be physically located together, although it may help.

Registration will CLOSE at 11:59pm on April 23rd and late registrations will not be accepted. If any of your team members are IACA volunteers, please email us directly at [email protected] to register your team. 

Please read the full description and registration instructions here.

Tactical Series 2024

Language English
Difficulty Level / Intended Audience Anyone

Tactical crime analysis is a crucial element in modern policing, providing police with the tools and methodologies necessary to effectively combat crime. It's a frequent, action-oriented process meant to serve the immediate needs of the agency.

This webinar series will walk you through the entire tactical analysis process: from identifying a series, forecasting, tactical products, effective responses, all the way to post-arrest considerations. Instructors will provide real world examples and demonstrate techniques. 

All Tactical Series webinars will be recorded; if you cannot attend the live session, we will provide the recording within 2 business days. All registrants who are IACA members will receive Continuing Education Credits and you may request a certificate if you want one. For non-registrants, the recordings will be posted to the webinar library after 45 days.
