Since 1992, we have worked to observe, record and study ghosts and claimed paranormal activity. We are looking for all possibilities in an accepted scientific oriented method. PTPI is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in North Carolina. We are dedicated to the research and investigation of haunting claims and ghost phenomena. We collect data related to these events and educate the public by the sharing of information. We are looking for the preponderance of evidence. Because these events happen "in the field" rather than in a laboratory or other controlled location, we feel it is even more important to use great care and sound methods. We continue to develop theories, test and re-test, and collect data in an objective manner.

The team members you see listed here are just a few of the people that make up our successful team. They are well respected for their dedication, hard work and knowledge. They work within each of their Communities and are highly trusted within their own field of work. They have many years of experience within this field of study and spend countless hours of volunteered time to help educate the public and document claims of activity. A lot of their personal jobs help with the study and investigation techniques used to document these claims. Most here have had their own teams, still work closely with many other teams and have had their own personal experiences peaking their interest in this field. ​​These members are members of  Law Enforcement, Firefighters, school educators, medical professionals, EMS, retired military (Veterans), scientist, psychiatrist, clergy, etc. Not to exclude people of the Metaphysical study such as healing/energy workers, Psychic/Mediums, Shaman's, Pagan practitioners, Reiki Masters and teachers, etc. Through our networking we are able to fulfill the needs of any client. We do not judge nor reject any client on basis of ethnicity, gender, religious belief or lack there of. We ourselves come from many different backgrounds and belief systems. We give as much as we possibly can so you, the client, may be educated and put at ease with whatever your situation may be. Once a client, ALWAYS a client. We stand together in the need for compassion for not only the living, but for those that have past as well.
