GAPPI is a self-governing association of Private Investigators. GAPPI was created to educate members, enforce code of ethics, and to establish mutual feelings of trust and friendships among its members and other investigative agencies throughout Georgia and the United States of America. GAPPI also strives to monitor and educate members about legislative issues that directly affect the investigative industry.

The Georgia Association of Professional Private Investigators, Inc. was founded and incorporated under the laws of the State of Georgia in July, 1996.

GAPPI accomplishes their educational goals through the Southeast Investigators Conference, held annually, a spring conference, and monthly Chapter meetings. The conferences attract top speakers to address the important issues facing you as an investigator while also providing an accepted method of achieving the mandated continuing education requirements of the State Licensing Board. The monthly chapter meetings provide an additional opportunity to meet your continuing education requirements in a more personal setting, providing greater opportunity for questions, answers and interactions with our guest speakers.

Training Sessions

Our Code of Ethics, and our annual ethics training sessions provide you with knowledge and guidance to help you make ethical business decisions when they are representing you and your company.


GAPPI has played an active role in monitoring proposed legislation that would affect our members… speaking for that legislation that would benefit the profession and against legislation that would not serve the profession or our clients.


GAPPI provides an opportunity for members to meet others in the profession, stay abreast of the newest techniques and technology, and ultimately expand your business capabilities and client offerings.
