The CDITC Awards Program

The CDITC proudly recognizes those professionals who go "Above and Beyond" what is asked.  They are the unsung heros of our profession who demonstrate the dedication, talent, and ability that is reserved for the very few.  It is in this spirit that we present our colleagues with the honor and respect that they have earned.


The Investigator/Philosopher Award


This Award is presented to those few who have elevated the discipline of criminal investigation.  They have led by example and assumed the highest level of expertise.  Their leadership includes that of director, instructor, author, and mentor to many.


The CDITC Field Commendation Award


This award is presented to what is best described as the "Investigator's Investigator".  The professional who maintains a level of dedication and expertise that is second to none.  They have proven themselves on specific cases or during the course of their career.
