Who we are
Welcome to the site of the Eastern States Vice Investigators Association, Inc. ESVIA, Inc., enjoys a strong tradition of providing exclusive training in the area of Illicit Drug Trafficking, Human Trafficking, Prostitution, Gambling and Gang Enforcement. ESVIA, Inc. holds its annual training Conference in Virginia Beach, Virginia during the week prior to Memorial Day. You can view additional information on this conference and location in this site, just check the links. I will take a few moments to give you the future direction of the Association and the elected directors who are making it become a reality.
ESVIA, Inc. is comprised of Law Enforcement personnel across the East Coast of the United States and includes Canada. Therefore, we are not only providing excellent training opportunities, but we can also put you in touch with investigators when you find that your investigation is going beyond your jurisdictional boundaries. Please do not hesitate to call upon us as the need arises.
We are working extremely hard to update the site and provide useful information to our membership and prospective members.
John Garafalo (Director of Training) and Van Jackson (Deputy Director of Training) are working hard throughout the entire year in preparation for our annual conference. Additionally, John and Van are available to assist you in fulfilling your training needs throughout the calendar year. Do not hesitate to reach out to John or Van with any training topics or suggestions that might assist you with furtherance of your investigations.
If any member of the executive board of directors may be of assistance to you now or in the future, please do not hesitate to contact us. We have additional members on the board, too numerous to mention here, but work in strategic areas to ensure completion of the ESVIA, Inc. Mission.
