Welcome to the Wisconsin Association for Identification. My name is Paul Olsen and I am a Detective with the Sheboygan Police Department. I have been a member of the WAI for nine years and it is an honor and privilege to be the 2017/2018 President of the WAI.
As president of the WAI I will strive to lead this organization in every way possible during my term. With today’s climate of dwindling budgets and reduced manpower, and hearing that other state chapters are folding, I am proud to say the WAI is still standing strong and that is because of our strong membership. Our association continually provides excellent training on relevant topics to our disciplines within the criminal justice field.
I will ensure that the elected officials of our organization will uphold our mission by providing educational seminars to members of the law enforcement community. This includes, as outlined in our mission statement, dissemination of useful information related to all the disciplines of forensic sciences. We also will continue to provide local administration in the state of Wisconsin for the international professional certification programs of the International Association for Identification, and to encourage the highest ethical standards in collection, preservation and examination of evidence.

I look forward to serving our membership as president and it truly is an honor to be part of this organization.
