WAD in Las Vegas this week

WAD featured on Daily Mail website

The World Association of Detectives Annual Conference in Las Vegas has caught the attention of the Daily Mail who have featured one of the seminars in an article on their website.

Michael Julian hosted a timely presentation to delegates on how to survive an active shooter situation - one year after the Las Vegas shooting which killed 58 people and injured more than 800 others at the Mandalay Bay resort.

Julian called for Americans of all ages to be given training to help them survive an active shooter situation. The Las Vegas strip went dark on Monday night to mark the the first anniversary of the atrocity.

The article also highlighted the work of the World Association of Detectives, whose outgoing President Mike LaCorte, CEO of Conflict International, explained how the organisation is helping alleviate pressures on public sector financing issues. He told the Daily Mail: "Our members are fighting fraud, investigating crime, finding missing children, preparing cases for litigation, you name it.

"The amazing work WAD members do in the private sector really relieves the pressure from the public sector, especially where police forces are stretched."
