Our Mission

IAATI South Central Chapter

Welcome to the Texas Association of Vehicle Theft Investigators (TAVTI), the South Central Regional Chapter (SCRC) of the International Association of Auto Theft Investigators (IAATI)!

TAVTI/SCRC is a public safety-based organization comprised of members from Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, New Mexico and Oklahoma.  Our mission is to reduce the occurrence of vehicle crimes through quality law enforcement training, networking, and communication.  We welcome members from any agency or organization with a like-minded interest in vehicle crime reduction.

MAY 2020 UPDATE:  Please note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, SCRC's 2020 Conference in San Marcos, Texas, has been canceled.  We will utilize the same location when we resume conferences in 2021.  Currently, the next conference is scheduled for September 28 - October 1, 2021, at the Embassy Suites in San Marcos, Texas.  Please stay tuned to the "Upcoming Training Seminars" section of this SCRC website for more information as details become available.

NOTE:  Although the 2020 Conference has been canceled, SCRC will distribute scholarships in October 2020, just as would have occurred if the conference went on as planned.  For anyone interested in submitting a scholarship application, please access the application in the "Branch Documentation" section of this SCRC website for further information.  Scholarship applications are due by September 1, 2020.

NOTE:  Because we will not have a 2020 Conference, for which annual membership dues are included in the registration fee, anyone wishing to remain a member of SCRC must complete the membership form found in the "Branch Documentation" section of this website.
