The Institute was formed in 1988 by a group of professional licensed private investigators committed to raising the bar in standards, professionalism and client expectation.
With members throughout New Zealand, the Institute is now regarded by many as the “The Industry Body” for Professional Investigators in New Zealand.
And we pride ourselves in delivering highly professional services through our members, which means incumbent members must;
agree to in writing that they will adhere to the highest professional standards and our Code of Ethics, and
be approved as a peer by all current members prior to membership acceptance
Although started in 1988 by private investigators, it is no longer a requirement to be a licensed private investigator to be a member of the Institute, our membership is now open to other full-time or allied investigator such as in-house investigators, consultants and in some instances specialist providers.
However, definitely, if you are contemplating engaging a licensed professional private investigator in New Zealand, choosing a member of NZIPI should be your first consideration.
