USAPI is quite different from other organizations in that it will be an inclusive rather than exclusive group. The first difference that you will see is that membership is open to all “professional investigators.” Any individual who is currently employed in the capacity of a professional investigator including any current active duty law enforcement whether or not you are titled as an Investigator, Federal Agent, DA Investigator, Public Defender investigator or licensed Private Investigator. If you are a non-sworn employee for a law enforcement agency or an employee of a licensed Private Investigator you must be an employee for a period of no less than one year, and least 21 years of age. Law Enforcement, PI’s, Insurance, Child Welfare, Military, etc., are all welcome. We even have a Student Category for the individual is at school and expresses an interest in learning more about the investigative profession.
