I am delighted to reach out to members and potential members of International Institute of Certified Forensic Investigation Professionals (IICFIP), an organization formed to work for the advancement of the forensic investigation professionals. As crime rates rise and as crimes tend to become more sophisticated, the challenges faced by a forensic investigation professional keeps changing, and he / she is expected to continuously innovate in order to meet the growing complexity of the forensic process. In addition, two other factors have significantly influenced the way contemporary forensic investigation processes take place – the increasing number of trans-border crimes and the burgeoning numbers of cyber-crimes. While the conventional forensic life cycle underwent a perceptible change with the advent of white collar crimes, a paradigm shift is taking place in the cyber-centric world of trans-border crimes. Apart from imparting knowledge and providing skill training, an independent examination system assesses professionals and certifies those who demonstrate sufficient knowledge and expertise in different facets of forensic investigation process. IICFIP lays emphasis on the ethical behaviour of its members. Every certificate holder and examinee subscribes to the Code of Ethics of the Institute, which is periodically revisited by the Ethics Committee. In this regard, IICFIP is involved in developing the knowledge and skills needed to support professionals while responding to the changing expectations of stakeholders. In this regard, I encourage all forensic investigation professionals and learners to be part of the 7th IICFIP Global Forensic Conference that will take place from the 22nd to 24th June, 2020 in Yaounde, Cameroon.
Prof. Dr. Rama Subramaniam
Promoting The Excellence of Forensic Investigation Skills Globally.
The choice of Cameroon to host the IICFIP 7th global conference is not a surprise. We nicknamed "Africa in miniature" because of its climatology, mining, geographical, human and cultural diversity. The official languages are English and French, these languages are spoken by 30% and 70% of the population respectively. Currency, Franc of the Financial Cooperation in Central Africa (FCFA). In 2017, Cameroon's population stood at 24,253,757 million inhabitants (Source: website of the National Institute of Statistics (INS). There are 240 ethnic groups in Cameroon. This diversity contributes to the cultural richness of the country. Cameroon is a secular state with multiple religious groups. Many populations also practise animism. The administrative divisions include 10 regions, 58 departments and 360 municipalities. The ambition to become an emerging economy by 2035 demands we adopt adequate skills, tool and competencies that brings out the best value for money. The government of Cameroon has enacted laws and regulations to fight this warm canker eating into the economic fabric and impeding the speedy growth of the economy. The government effort is further visible through the creation of multiple institutions for the fight, such as the supreme state control, the CONAC, ANIF, and so on, to name a few. This conference aligns with the public policy efforts in equipping the people with adequate skills, competences, requisite technics in further combating crime.
