Background

IAATI Northeast Regional Chapter History

IAATI was established in 1952 to improve communication and coordination among the growing number of professional vehicle crime investigators. It has since grown to over 4 900 international members, representing over 43 countries. Members include representatives from law enforcement agencies and many others with a vested interest in vehicle crime investigation, such as the insurance industry, vehicle manufacturers, vehicle rental and leasing agencies.

The Northeast Regional Chapter received its charter from the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI) on January 24, 1972. The founding charter members in their wisdom saw the present and future need of an organization which would serve those persons involved in the field of vehicle theft investigation in the Northeastern USA and the Eastern Provinces of Canada. The high population density and the proximity of the International border dictated the need for establishing a separate chapter to handle the unique problems prevalent in this geographical area of the North American continent. 

Today, NE-IAATI is composed of hundreds of active and retired law enforcement officers, insurance professionals, vehicle fraud investigators, and automotive experts from both sides of the border.  Our members are dedicated to the investigation and prevention of auto theft, insurance fraud, and related crimes and we strive to ensure that our membership is uniquely qualified and trained in that respect.
