NCISS The Back-story!

In September 1975, the World Association of Detectives (W.A.D.) held its annual conference at the Netherlands Plaza Hotel in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The National Council of Investigation and Security Services, Inc., (NCISS)

We Serve 873 NCISS Members

The National Council of Investigation and Security Services, Inc., is a cooperative effort of those companies and associations responsible for providing private security and investigation services to the legal profession, business community, government and the public. Each day we find an increasing number of problems confronting the orderly growth of our profession. These problems include, among others: overly restrictive legislation regarding training and standards, proliferation of legislation requiring local licensing, public misunderstanding and misinformation on the role and contribution of private investigators and security services, and an uninformed media. It is the role of NCISS to meet and solve these problems while seeking to uncover and recommend action on any hidden potential problems which may have an effect on our profession.
