MAPI Introduction

 

 

Description:

The Minnesota Association of Private Investigators and Protective Agents is a non-profit corporation organized under and pursuant to the provisions found in the Minnesota State Non-Profit Corporation Act. MAPI was initially organized and founded by a group of private investigators interested in building career awareness through shared resources and educational opportunities. MAPI was exclusively organized as a fraternal association for educational, political, legal and social purposes. The corporation works solely for the benefit of its members and respective industries.

Mission Statement:

The Minnesota Association of Private Investigators and Protective Agents' mission was recently revised to reflect legislative acts, statutes, rules and regulations that established new training mandates. The mission statement was modified to ensure MAPI provides continuing education opportunities and training materials for members and non-members alike, all of which meet or exceed state requirements.

MAPI is dedicated to the professional development of Licensed Private Investigators and Protective Agents as decreed in the Minnesota statutes.

MAPI promotes and maintains the highest ethical practices in the field of private investigation and protective agents, and only accepts as members those individuals whose background meets our stringent code of ethics. To be considered for membership, it is important that individuals have strictly observed the precepts of truth, accuracy and ethics in their professional and private life.
