Council of International Investigators -The Council

In October of 1955, a group of well-known and highly respected private investigators gathered informally in Chicago, Illinois. The purpose of this meeting was to consider the formation of a close knit organization that they could trust to handle investigatory matters in their respective local areas. Emphasis was put on "Quality" not "Quantity".

As the existence of this professional group became known due to its lofty standards of integrity, ethics, and mutual trust, many other investigators sought to be accepted into "The Council". The original group expanded the membership and areas of world coverage through careful selective screening of applicants.

Today, membership in "The Council" adds dignity and prestige to each individual member selected for certified membership status. Since the membership consists of persons of the same basic high qualities, a warm friendship and mutual trust exists which enhances the social and business relationship of the Council. The adoption of and strict adherence to the Council Code of Ethics has met with universal approval by public law enforcement agencies, legislatures, and public officials. It also assures Council clients of the highest professional efforts in the pursuit of their interest.

Although comparatively young in years, the Council of International Investigators has achieved the position in our profession and before the public, as the spokesman for ethical investigators throughout the world. The Council is already rich in tradition and reputation for excellence in our service area.
