Welcome to the new AZGIA website


Welcome to the Arizona Gang Investigator’s Association, Inc. (AzGIA) website. AzGIA was established in 2007 by a group of law enforcement professionals from around the State of Arizona, each dedicated to proactively working towards eradicating the negative impact gangs have on our communities. AzGIA’s Board of Directors is proud to volunteer their time towards this worthy cause as each board member carries a personal passion for this mission. AzGIA is a non-profit 501(c)(3) and 100% of all donations go directly towards our training and education mission. We would like to thank all of our sponsors who continue to help us serve this mission.

AzGIA hosts several trainings for law enforcement professionals around the state each year as well as our annual three-day symposium. Our goal is to provide the most current information on gang trends and also provide a valuable networking resource to our members. All current members of AzGIA are also members of the National Alliance of Gang Investigators Association (NAGIA). With more than 15,000 members around the country and Canada the ability to locate a resource for your gang issue is only a few clicks away.

To all our brothers and sisters working in law enforcement we are dedicated to serving you and your needs. Please keep yourself and your partner safe.

Arizona Gang Investigators Association President
