Vidocq Society Membership is a rare privilege.
The right to wear the unique red, white and blue Vidocq Society rosette has been bestowed upon fewer than 150 men and women. We receive many inquiries from individuals wishing to join The Vidocq Society. We understand the interest shown by men and women in and out of law enforcement, but our ethnically diverse, non-profit organization's membership rolls are closed.
When a Vidocq Society position becomes vacant, the process leading to membership is neither automatic nor open to members of the public. New Vidocq Society Members must be sponsored by existing members. In addition, prospective new members come from a pool of men and women who have already volunteered forensic skills that Vidocq has used to advance one of its investigations.
Seasoned investigators, with verifiable skills, do not have to be Vidocq Society members in order to contribute their forensic talent to one of our investigations. In fact, many Society members volunteered for some time before being elected to Vidocq Society membership.
Even if you do not have a forensic or other volunteer skill that we need, you can still support Vidocq by subscribing to our newsletter, The Vidocq Journal.
