Minnesota Sex Crimes Investigators 
                Association (MN/SCIA)
                   Established in 1991

Welcome to the Minnesota Sex Crimes Investigators Association (MN/SCIA)

In 1991, a small group of dedicated sex crimes investigators from law enforcement agencies throughout Minnesota organized as the Minnesota Sex Crimes Investigators Association (MNSCIA) for the purpose of assisting members in investigation of sex crimes. Today, MN/SCIA members include over 150 investigators from around the region.

MN/SCIA has established:

  • A network of sex crimes investigators and provides members with a forum to discuss and exchange information related to sex crimes, case management and operational strategies.
  • Quality training/educational opportunities, with MN POST credits, for law enforcement and other personnel involved in sex crimes investigations.
  • A professional resource for members of the Minnesota Legislature for the purpose of drafting new laws concerning criminal sexual conduct.
