A new relationship in Florida with FAPI...

We have recently formed a Professional Affiliation with the Florida Association of Private Investigators (FAPI) which allows our members educational training and business referral opportunities. We have provided a link to the Membership Directory for FAPI and recommend their members for investigative and security related work in the State of Florida and beyond, as they have several members who are investigators in other states and countries.
