Welcome to CALI - An Association of Excellence

The California Association of Licensed Investigators is the largest private investigator association in the world, comprised of Private Investigators and allied professionals throughout California, the United States, and globally. Our goals are to advance the investigation profession through education and legislation.

CALI dedicates resources and energy to make certain that we have the most viable and effective legislative program possible by employing a full-time lobbyist in Sacramento and partnering with the National Council of Investigation and Security Services in Washington D.C. to support their legislative efforts on behalf of CALI.  Please click here to continue reading.
