Welcome to CALI

The California Association of Licensed Investigators is the largest private investigator association in the world. Our goals are to advance the investigation and security profession through education and legislation.

The Association has a full time lobbyist in Sacramento and we partner with the National Council of Investigation and Security Services in Washington D.C. to support their legislative efforts on behalf of CALI.

CALI members receive many benefits, including the most active Private Investigator Listserv in California, special member discounts on products and services, discounted long term disability and long-term care insurance, free training Webinars, discounted access to our Annual Conference, District meetings held in your area at least four times per year and our website provides you an individual profile page to reach more clients.

In addition, CALI offers NLITE, Newly Licensed Investigator Training and Enrichment to any Private Investigator recently licensed by the State of California. NLITE is an affordable and unmatched basic education course that all new investigators can benefit from. CALI offers this training as part of our commitment to advancing our profession through education.

CALI proud to announce a new membership benefit between the three largest statewide PI associations in the country. As of today every CALI member can join both the Florida Association of Licensed Investigators (FALI), and the Texas Association of Licensed Investigators (TALI), as an out-of-state member for half the price of their regular dues.
