U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

             Anti-Defamation League (ADL)

In partnership with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, ADL developed this innovative training to examine what can happen when law enforcement personnel do not uphold democratic principles.  Through the lens of the Holocaust, participants look at law enforcement’s role in propagating atrocities in Nazi Germany during the 1930s and 1940s.  Every new FBI special agent must go through this training, which has also become standard protocol for several major metropolitan police forces, the Department of Homeland Security and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  Since its establishment in 1999 in Washington, D.C., more than 130,000 law enforcement officers have participated in LEAS trainings.


This session requires pre-registration and is limited to 45 participants.

Dr. Jeane Lambrecht

The Cognitive Interview (CI) is an empirically-based interview technique that has been shown to effectively increase the quantity and quality of information obtained from interviewees in criminal and counterintelligence investigations. This presentation will provide an orientation to the CI, its underlying principles, and provide recommendations on how to incorporate the CI into an Investigative Interview model.  Videos and case examples will be provided to illustrate the underlying principles of the CI, and to highlight the effectiveness of the CI in the overall interview strategy.  The presentation is focused on the operational use of these evidence-based techniques, and geared toward investigators in the field. 


This session requires pre-registration and is limited to 30 participants.


8:30 a.m.- 5:00 p.m.

Special Event

2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.


Location:  National Museum of African American History and Culture, 1400 Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C.

WIFLE is offering a limited number of passes to visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in honor of the 20th Anniversary of WIFLE’s Annual Leadership Training. 


The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is a Smithsonian Institution museum established in December 2003. It has close to 37,000 objects in its collection related to such subjects as community, family, the visual and performing arts, religion, civil rights, slavery, and segregation. The museum has about 85,000 square feet of exhibition space with 12 exhibitions, 13 different interactives with 17 stations, and 183 videos housed on five floors.


Early efforts to establish a federally owned museum featuring African-American history and culture can be traced to 1915, although the modern push for such an organization did not begin until the 1970s. After years of little success, a much more serious legislative push began in 1988 that led to authorization of the museum in 2003. A site was selected in 2006. The museum opened September 24, 2016, in a ceremony led by U.S. President Barack Obama.


This session requires pre-registration and is limited to 75 participants.


5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.                                     


Location: Regency ABCD Foyer

Hosted appetizers and a complimentary beverage will be provided including water, soda, beer, wine, or a special WIFLE drink.  A full cash bar is available.
