My colleague and fellow document examiner, Tobin Tanaka, is giving a presentation about Forensic Document Examination at the Canadian Identification Society (CIS) Annual Educational Conference at the River Rock Casino in lovely Richmond, BC.
A full review of the conference will be provided at some time in the future but, for now, Tobin has asked me to provide links to his presentations so that attendees have access to his talk in electronic format.
The information is available via the following links:
