A Global Alliance of Investigators & Security Professionals

With origins dating back to 1921, W.A.D. is the longest established and largest association of its kind in the world.

The World Association of Detectives was formed as a joint venture by the combined membership of the World Association of Detectives and the International Secret Service Association for the following purposes:

  • To promote and maintain the highest ethical practices in the profession of private investigator or security service;
  • To select for membership only those individuals whose personal and professional backgrounds and business affiliations have strictly observed the precepts of truth, accuracy and prudence;
  • To eliminate unreliable, incompetent and irresponsible members of the profession;
  • To foster and perpetuate a spirit of cooperation among its members and with all those engaged in law enforcement; and
  • To further and establish a mutual feeling of trust, goodwill and friendship among agencies throughout the world.
