About Us

North Texas PI Association

The North Texas Private Investigators Association is composed of licensed private investigators of all specialties from across Texas. We are dedicated to three goals:


Our Association strives to maintain and improve the standards of our industry. We provide Mentoring and Continuing Education programs to our membership. Texas law requires licensed private investigators to obtain 18 hours of continuing education on a biennial basis (Required are 2 continuing education credits in Ethics and 2 continuing education credits on the PSB). However, through participation in NTPIA events, many of our members double or triple that requirement. We work with other professional associations on State and Federal legislative issues impacting our industry.


The NTPIA gives members many opportunities to network with one another through our monthly meetings, email discussion group, and special education events.


Working together to serve our community, NTPIA members support many worthwhile causes

PI School

Each meeting is eligible for 1 CE hour. Continuing education $10 for Full members , $5 for Associates and $15 for Non-members (NO CE CERT).
NTPIA provides two hours of Ethics and two hours of Board Rule training to meet CE standards.


NTPIA members agree to abide by the rules and regulations as set forth by the Texas Department of Public Safety, Private Security Bureau. The NTPIA Board and members will strive to display non-prejudicial professional practices and attitudes when dealing with clients, members of the investigative profession, and other members of NTPIA. Thereby, NTPIA members are always diligently attempting to perform at the highest level of industry excellence.
