The Utah Gang Investigators Association is excited to announce the 2019 Third Annual Conference! 


This year we are excited to welcome Lieutenant Nate Hutchinson, who was involved in a thirteen-minute gun battle after his narcotics team was ambushed while serving a knock and announce search warrant on a small marijuana grow house. During the gunfight, Lieutenant Hutchinson was shot five times while rescuing injured officers from the home. Lieutenant Hutchinson will provide a debrief of the search warrant, a detailed account of the gunfight, lessons learned in the aftermath, as well as the mindset that helped him survive the near fatal gunshot wounds and continue to fight until all of his team had been pulled from the home.


We are also excited to offer the premier narcotics investigations class for Corrections!
