Association of Force Investigators Accreditation Program

The Association of Force Investigators (AFI) Accreditation Program was established as an independent and objective means of evaluating the qualifications of those professionals involved in the investigation and analysis of police use of force encounters. AFI accreditation does not require affiliation with any particular organization or completion of any specific training program. Rather, credentialing is based upon an overall assessment of an applicant’s knowledge, ability, training, and experience regarding the competent investigation and analysis of use of force events. 

The benefits of AFI accreditation include:

 

  • AFI accreditation encourages the continued intellectual and professional development of those participating in the investigation and analysis of use of force incidents.

  • AFI accreditation provides members of the legal community, governmental agencies, private institutions, and the public at large with a valuable resource when appraising the suitability of those charged with the investigation and analysis of the application of force by a law enforcement officer. 

  • AFI accreditation supports the recognition of qualified experts and their subsequent provision of reliable testimony in court and comparable venues.

  • AFI accreditation promotes the integrity and credibility of use of force investigation and analysis professionals.
