Welcome to the home of the New Jersey Licensed Private Investigator’s Association. NJLPIA was established in 1955 to promote professionalism among our licensed investigator members. Since that time, NJLPIA, through its general membership and many volunteer board members, has worked hard to increase our ranks, establish an open dialogue with our licensing body – the New Jersey State Police, promote education and training for investigators and monitor and effect change in the NJ and Federal legislatures.
In addition, NJLPIA exists to help the general public learn more about our profession as well as  to locate professional, qualified and licensed private investigators. We have members located from the southern tip of NJ to the northern most part of our state ready to help clients achieve their investigative goals.

To become a member of NJLPIA, please follow the “Join NJLPIA” link and begin taking advantage of the many benefits that membership offers. The return on your investment by joining NJLPIA will be significant, whether through increased business, valuable training programs or assistance received from fellow members through our listserv which is an invaluable resource and virtual knowledge base of investigative ideas, tips and support.
