Shoreline, WA (PressExposure) August 28, 2009 -- Coordinating the event is the Conference Director, Beth A. Lavin, the IAWP Regional Head for Region 9. Holding the fulll-time rank of Master Police Officer with the King County Sheriff's Department in Washington State, Beth has headed this effort since winning IAWP approval for the Seattle location in 2006. "The 2009 Conference Committee is hard at work to make sure this training lives up to the IAWP standards for law enforcement," Beth remarked at a recent meeting. "Our goal is to provide IAWP Delegates from the 18 IAWP Regions with information that impacts law enforcement globally. We are all policing without borders in today's world. This training is an excellent opportunity for the international delegates to learn from each other as well as from the instructors. Additionally, we are looking forward to showing off Seattle and surrounding areas to the conference participants."
