AISOCC Case Submission Process

AISOCC's cold case submission process is easy.

Upon their request, AISOCC reviews cold cases submitted by investigating law enforcement agencies. AISOCC does not review partial case files, cases submitted by victim's families, etc., to prevent evaluative errors due to missing case file information. AISOCC must be invited to review the case at which time, AISOCC's Cold Case Intake Committee works with the requesting agency to prepare and submit the cold case for review. Upon completion of AISOCC's Cold Case Review, AISOCC furnishes the requesting law enforcement agency with a comprehensive, interdisciplinary report that contains information and ideas for how investigators might move forward with investigating the case.

Confidentiality is forefront at AISOCC.
