Over 160 people attended LEVA’s 29th Annual Digital Multimedia Training Symposium in San Antonio, Texas during the week of November 5.

That is the best attendance of any preceding LEVA symposium. The growth reflects the interest, necessity and impact of LEVA’s digital multimedia evidence training program.

Attendees came from across the US, Canada, Scandinavia, Europe and the Caribbean. They represent law enforcement and public safety agencies at all levels, district attorney’s offices and private industry.

The LEVA Board of Directors thanks everyone including vendors and instructors who contributed to this truly memorable event.

Plans are already underway to mark the milestone of LEVA’s 30th annual training symposium. Put in on your calendars!
