LPDARI was formed in 1998 by several professional investigators, with the goal of providing a place where other investigators could get together for networking and education.

Over the years the association had grown into more of an informational association working hard at getting out legislative news that can effect the investigative profession.

The Licensed Private Detectives Association of Rhode Island was founded to promote and maintain the highest ethical practices in the profession of Private Investigations.

We strive to

1. Further the spirit of cooperation and mutual assistance among members of LPDARI and the law enforcement community.
2. Further a mutual feeling of trust, goodwill and friendship among investigating agencies.
3. Monitor and take action on any legislation that may affect our profession.
4. Upgrade the professional standards of our organization and its members through continued education.
