Welcome to the New Jersey Licensed Private Investigators Association

 

NJLPIA was established in 1955 to promote professionalism among our licensed investigator members.

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.
