Important Announcement

Our 2018 annual Robbery Investigators of Texas (RIOT) Conference was an enormous success experiencing a 25% growth from the previous year. This continued success is attributable to our devoted attendees and our superb sponsors. Due to our progressive positive growth and our training diversity, your RIOT Board of Directors are excited to elevate the conference to the next level and transition to a name that we believe better identifies and reflects our national presence. The Texas Robbery Conference is now known as the National Law Enforcement and Corporate Crimes Convention. We will continue to provide the same world class training and case studies while broadening the scope for those who view our training announcement and are not familiar with our organization or convention. This is an extremely exciting time as RIOT will continue to maintain the reputation as the host of the most prestigious law enforcement and corporate security convention offered in the United States.

RIOT is the only association of its kind in the United States

RIOT promotes valuable relationships among law enforcement and corporate security professionals. We believe it’s extremely advantageous to train and collaborate each year through our annual convention.

If you are federal, state or local law enforcement; we believe you will find benefit in this association. Law enforcement analysts, prosecutors, and other criminal justice professionals are invited to network within our association. RIOT wants to also connect with private industry security professionals who partner with law enforcement to conduct their investigations as well as those responsible for the safety of their employees or customers. These professionals might include employees of financial institutions, armored transportation companies, grocery stores, restaurants, cell phone providers, pharmacies, jewelry stores or other retail and service providers.


Connect with us by clicking the red “JOIN RIOT (FREE)” button. This will enable us to notify you via email regarding important convention announcements and updates. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend the most prestigious law enforcement and corporate security training convention offered in the United States!
