3rd Annual Cold Case Homicide and Death Investigations Conference

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office presents its 3rd Cold Case Homicide and Death Investigations Conference Sepember 29 - October 2 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Murfreesboro, Tenn. The 145 officers from 80+ agencies across the USA and Canada who attended first two conferences gave extremely positive reviews. This year’s conference/training event is largely cold case-specific and our lineup of instructors and presenters has changed. This year we’re asking each agency in attendance to bring at least one open-unsolved murder case to present to the entire class and instructors. A group discussion of investigative strategies will follow.

Tuition: Tuition is $400, but agencies sending three investigators can add a fourth or more for half-price.

Lodging: DoubleTree is offering a conference rate on rooms of $83.00 per night for a single and $99.00 per night for a double.
