California Robbery Investigators Association 

CRIA has been uniting California's finest for over 40 years... 


Welcome to C.R.I.A.! 


The California Robbery Investigators Association was founded in 1972 to promote closer relationships between robbery investigators throughout the state, as well as professionals in private industries related to robbery investigation. 


We strive to:

  • Aid in solving robbery cases by encouraging more effective dissemination and exchange of information
  • Support legislation to curb robberies and to ensure that adequate sentences are imposed on defendants
  • Prevent robberies by engaging the community and private industry through education
  • Provide educational opportunities for investigators and private industry professionals
  • Encourage the development of new methods, techniques, and technologies to assist investigators in identifying and apprehending robbery suspects

We represent and celebrate more than four decades of dauntless

commitment to the California law enforcement community.
