Q: What is NALPI?
A: The Nebraska Association of Licensed Private Investigators (also known by its acronym "NALPI") is an association comprised of a diverse group of licensed private investigators and related professionals, from across the entire state of Nebraska. 

Q: What is the general nature of NALPI?
A: As it is filed with the Secretary of State - Corporations division at the state capitol in Lincoln, NALPI is "a fraternal association to promote and maintain the highest educational standards and ethical practices in the fields of investigation and related practices."

Q: What is the central purpose/goal of NALPI?
A: The primary purpose of this organization is education.  Its objectives are to:


    1) Encourage and develop cooperation among all Nebraska private detectives, law enforcement agencies, and other government agencies, in the application and utilization of the services that private detectives provide

    for the good of the general public;

    2) Promote and maintain the highest standards of ethics, integrity, honor and conduct in the private detective profession;

    3) Develop the highest standards of proficiency in the profession by fostering and encouraging training, study and progressive techniques among the members;

    4) Provide an opportunity and forum for the exchange of information between members regarding experiences, studies, and training;

    5) Establish a means of ongoing communication between the members and agencies responsible for licensing and regulation of private detectives;

    6) Monitor legislation, proposed legislation, or regulation, which affects private detectives, and to support or oppose legislation based on the studied affect upon the industry;

    7) Disseminate by publication or other means, information of interest to members, the public, and government, for the benefit of the members; and

    8) Cooperate with other national, regional and state associations in matters of mutual interest and of benefit to the detective profession.


NALPI links Nebraska-licensed individuals and entities in various investigative fields and their related disciplines.  It seeks to define standards, contribute meaningfully to relationships and conversations with the general public, and to foster trust, respect and cooperation among its associates, whether they exist in either the public or private sectors.

Q: How often does NALPI meet?
A: NALPI normally meets quarterly (i.e., in the months of January, April, July, and October) in the capitol city of Lincoln, on the third Thursday of that month, at 2PM.  Members and invited speakers discuss issues affecting our professions and share information to help better our standards and techniques, similar to "continuing education" forums and seminars, and invited guests are always welcome.


We look forward to hearing from investigators and other professionals who are interested in networking and sharing progressive industry-relevant ideas.

We hope to see you at the next meeting.
