The International Latino Gang Investigators Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing quality training for law enforcement professionals. The ILGIA was formally established on January 1, 2002 to address the need for information relating to Latino based gangs by Law Enforcement, Corrections, and the community. Prior to ILGIA’s incorporation, the group was informally known as the “Latino Gangs Listbot” (1998-2002).
In 2002, ILGIA held it's first annual conference in Seattle, Washington. In the 18 years since, we have continued our commitment to providing the law enforcement and correctional communities with up-to-date training and intelligence about Latino gangs, cartels, human trafficking, and transnational crime groups. With our international membership and following, we are also able to track emerging trends and provide timely, relevant information on these trends and the criminal organizations involved. The Association provides multiple training opportunities each year throughout the United States. Please check back frequently for updates on our Training page.
The ILGIA membership includes federal, state, local, and tribal peace officers, prosecutors, correctional personnel, parole and probation officers, and our brother and sister officers from the international law enforcement community.
