An Association of Professional Investigators striving for Higher Standards

The Louisiana Private Investigators Association was founded to promote and to maintain the highest ethical practices in the profession of private investigators.   You are invited to take the time to browse through our site and learn about the LPIA.  You will find information about Louisiana private investigators, LPIA member benefits, history, events and links of interest. We are a non-profit professional trade organization and not a licensing authority. 

If you are interested in becoming licensed and want to learn the details of being licensed, contact the  Louisiana State Board of Private Investigator Examiners.*





*The LPIA is not associated with the Louisiana State Board of Private Investigator Examiners.  We are a professional membership organization.  We display their contact information here as a service to our members and the general public

Thank you! for visiting our website. 

We hope that you take the time to browse through our site and learn about the LPIA.  You will find information about Louisiana private investigators, LPIA member benefits, history, events and links of interest.

LPIA Region 2 Newsletter

In years past the LPIA published its own newsletter highlighting membership activities, articles for/by private investigators, contact information, advertising from Continuing Education providers and/or "spyware" retailers, and a multitude of other information or items related to the industry that might be useful to our membership or Louisiana Private Investigators. Our past publications included all four of the LPIA Regions - but it requires both commitment and a bit of "free labor". We have lacked the necessary resources, skills, or membership participation for a "dry spell", but recently several members have stepped forward to fill leadership roles that have been vacant. (See our new Roster of Officers on this site)

 One of those members, our new Region 2 Director, Larry Graffeo, has produced - and distributed - the LPIA's first Newsletter in some time. This publication only covered Region 2, but is slated to grow in future issues. Do you have any useful information you would like to share with the membership or private investigative industry? Didn't get your copy of this very useful publication?

For the time being, you only need to contact Larry Graffeo, CCIP at Janus One Investigations, LLC  via email: You may be more pleasantly surprised than you thought you'd be!

Continuing Education

Continuing Education for Louisiana Private Investigators has resumed. Eight (8) hours of Continuing Education is required every two years, and course credit can be obtained through multiple courses over the two year period. If you would like to present a topic at one of our sponsored seminars, we want to hear from you. All Continuing Education providers and course material must be approved by the LSBPIE prior to being sponsored by the LPIA and/or provided at an LPIA Seminar for licensing renewal credit.

Do You Have  Any Changes In Mind?

The LPIA Annual Officer Elections are held in October. 2015 is just beginning and as the events of this year unfold which affect our State, local communities, and our professional careers we have both a clean slate and ample time to contribute to the direction of our own destiny. We all have opinions - why keep them to yourself? What changes would you like to see in the structure of YOUR professional association? As a Private Investigator what do you feel we, as a professional trade organization,can give back to our community, our state, our profession?  Sadly, our association has so much wasted and untapped potential to impact our profession, and indirectly our own lives, an adequate measure or comparison is impossible. That loss to our State - to our profession - can be cured. Go online and check out what the Private Investigative Associations in other States have accomplished and/or are doing! This is not something that can be accomplished by seven or even twenty people. The old cliche "there is strength in numbers" still rings true. Louisiana has more than 1200 licensed investigators. Just imagine the impact that just a tenth of those professionals could have on our industry given a single course of action. Our Association is STILL without a full slate of leaders. If you are a member, or interested in becoming a member, of the LPIA and are interested in taking on the responsibilities of a leadership role in our Association, please contact Ed Roy, President.

A word from our President...

It is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to our Louisiana Private Investigator Association’s home on the web!

Over two decades ago, in 1987 to be exact, a forward thinking group of professional private investigators formed the Louisiana Private Investigators Association… the LPIA.  Members of the LPIA are afforded the opportunity of associating with other licensed private investigators from around the Bayou State that subscribe to the highest standards of practice and professionalism.  Our members promote the ideals of honesty, ethical investigative techniques and ethical behavior.

We realize that we represent not only ourselves and our companies, but also our clients.  When you choose an LPIA member, you can do so with confidence!  You’ll know that you are hiring an industry leading investigator who subscribes to our “code of ethics”, the most stringent in the business.

Since several members have asked me about looking into having the LPIA take a more active role in community projects and charity, the LPIA Board is considering several areas where we can impact our community and State; both through the fruits of our labor as well as our time and professional skills. This will be a different path than the LPIA has ever followed in its 26 year history, and we will seek to involve both members and non-member private investigators for a better tomorrow for our clients and the citizens of Louisiana. Even if you are not interested at this time in membership, but would be interested in participating in our charity or community project goals, you are invited to sign up for our newsletter that will provide more details as they are planned and scheduled. 

On behalf of the officers and members of the LPIA for 2015, I thank you for your interest in our association. LPIA members have always enjoy valuable benefits and are always on the leading edge of the industry. This year we will also strive to be on the leading edge of LPIA's history!  

We have several membership categories to accommodate you; please consider joining us. 

Ed Roy

LPIA President
