PISPWV welcomes membership inquiries from Private Investigators, Security Professionals, and others who have an interest in following the profession. We encourage Criminal Justice students to apply for Associate memberships in order to take advantage of our in-service training, networking opportunities and exposure to seasoned investigators. We are a fraternal, not-for-profit organization offering full memberships to licensed Private Investigators and Security Professionals and associate memberships to non-licensed interested parties. In addition to West Virginia, the Association has members in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland. PISPWV members are encouraged to belong to several professional organizations. PISPWV is a member organization to the National Council of Investigative and Security Services.
