2024 President's Message - Angela Wolf
On behalf of the OIOA board, I would like to welcome you to 2024 where new ideas will thrive and grow just like out membership. I sincerely thank each and every member that has supported our organization, from those who serve the membership on the board and push each year to be better, to members that spread the word about our organization, and to the newest of members who are discovering the community built by those that came before them. I am grateful that I am apart of this community where each one of you knows that help and knowledge are only an email, a phone call, or even a text away.
I am excited to introduce myself as your 2024 president. My name is Angela Wolf. I have served the Delaware County Sheriff's Office since 2002. I started my career as a dispatcher for six years and during that time I took classes in fingerprinting because I found it fascinating. I never believed that in 2009, I would be given the opportunity to transition into the role of a Ten-Print and Latent Print Examiner. To broaden my career, I took on the additional role of Crime Scene and Evidence Technician in 2018 and I received my Master Evidence Technician certification in 2023.
I have been a part of this organization since 2007 and in this time I have cultivated many professional contacts and built long lasting friendships. Our organization's growth and success is because of the support and dedication of all our members. Members that have stepped up and presented their knowledge to others at various conferences or by contributing an article in our news letter.
I will leave you with this quote by Susan Black, Professor o Anatomy & Forensic Anthropology. "Be in love with the science not in awe of the headlines. Truly understand that live your subject from the core.
I hope to see each of you at our 2024 Conference, September 4th - 6th, being held at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Dublin, Ohio. Thank you and welcome.
OIOA President 2024
