NALI Online Training 2021

Kitty Hailey, CLI


On-line ethics have been written about for guides to conduct ZOOM conferences, classroom education and board meetings. There are few, if any, published presentations on the role of the Internet in a time of COVID which limits taking witness statements to on-screen instead of in-person communication. This unique format has its own set of problems and challenges. In this brief one hour presentation Kitty addresses the issues and takes questions to further a greater understanding of our roles as investigators in a time of pandemic.

Kitty Hailey, CLI has been a NALI member for more than 30 years. She distinguished herself in 2005 by writing the first ever book of Ethics for investigators. The Code of Professional Conduct: Standards and Ethics for the Investigative Profession is now in its third edition. It has become the seminal reference book in the profession. In addition, Kitty is the author of the newly released Conversation with an Investigator and has penned several other published volumes as well. She is the author of more than 40 articles for professional journals and a regular lecturer at state and national association seminars. She now works primarily in the field of Civil Rights and Post-Conviction Investigations and is most proud of the work she has done over the years to promote professionalism in the industry.
