About Us:
Professional Investigators Alliance of Maryland (P.I.A.M.) was formed in 1994 by a group of professionals who had common interests, goals and needs, just like you.  The purposes of the Alliance included but were not limited to:
  • Advancing the profession of certified investigators
  • Representing the profession before the legislature
  • Promulgating policies and legislation proposal
  • Endeavoring to eliminate unreliable, incompetent and unlicensed individuals in the profession, and to promote and maintain the highest ethical standards
  • Offering resources for continuing education

P.I.A.M represents you and your interests in the investigative industry in the State of Maryland.  There are troubling consequences of new laws and proposed legislation that threaten to cripple our industry.  P.I.A.M. just might be the answer to helping you maintain your business and become more successful through education, information and networking.

Often these are our own members sharing investigative secrets or business tips that have helped make their business successful. Sometimes we go outside our industry in search of business topics helpful to everyone.
