Indiana State Police Lieutenant Dave Kirkham and First Sergeant Don McCay, both assigned to the Criminal Investigation Division, were recently in Rome, Georgia to teach a major case investigations class.
Lt. Kirkham (Area 1 Investigative Commander) and F/Sgt. Don McCay (District Investigative Commander for the Bremen Post) partnered up with Georgia Bureau of Investigations Special Agent Daniel Sims (former Indiana State Police trooper) to teach this class over a three day period in February to eighty-four officers from city and county agencies from all over northwest Georgia.
The class focused on how to manage a major case investigation and the pitfalls that are sometimes encountered while conducting a major investigation. The course consisted of classroom instruction and case presentations from Indiana and Georgia.
Indiana State Police is planning to host the same class in Indiana with the assistance of Georgia Bureau of Investigations sometime in 2014.
Lt. Kirkham stated, “It was a great opportunity for us to work with our brothers and sisters from Georgia. We are looking forward to hosting the class in Indiana and are excited to have the Georgia Bureau of Investigations partnering with us.”
