Paranormal Investigators & Researchers
Shedding light on the after life

Meet PARA

PARA (Paranormal Association of Research and Assistance) has worked very hard to build a team of professional investigators who are in this field for one reason, to help people. While you navigate through our site you will see resources that we have provided and interesting reading throughout, what you do not see is the members side of this site which is filled with hundreds of articles that are required reading for our investigators, equipment information and much more.

Our Members are each given a handbook of policies and procedures, outlining the way that PARA handles cases, equipment and methods. Each member is to fully know and understand our policies before they become a PARA certified investigators. To do so they must complete required reading and understand each piece of equipment that we use on our investigations, from what the equipment is, to what it measures, ranges, and theories behind why we use the equipment. Each investigator is given a final exam and will not be promoted from Investigator-in-training status until they have passed a written exam, have the required field time and knows the handbook in and out.

Each investigator is responsible for compiling their own reports. All of our reports are done utilizing an online reporting Database called ParaDB. ParaDB is a web-based PHP/MySQL application designed for use by ghost hunting and paranormal research organizations. The software consists of a web-based interface for case management, client relations and investigation reporting. As the name implies, all data is stored in a back-end database, allowing one to easily access, search for, and correlate data.

Our clients are given each individual report from each investigator, along with a formal report which quantifies all the individual reports. They also receive a copy of each piece of evidence collected if any. Our clients are our number one priority, and the best way to help our clients is to make sure our entire team is on the same page. PARA is fully committed to providing the community with a professional and accurate representation of the Paranormal Investigative Community, in our eyes there is no other way to do it.

Each year PARA gives back to our community by choosing a charity to donate to, This year we have chosen the Historic Fort Mifflin on the Delaware, to date we have raised over $6000 dollars for the Fort with the help of our other friends in the Paranormal Community, and still have other fundraisers in the works. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about who we are, if you have questions please feel free to contact us.

Bio's on all of our members will be available soon, thank you for your interest.
