JANUARY IS NATIONAL STALKING AWARENESS MONTH

According to President Seldon Nason: "The New Hampshire League of Investigators supports The New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence, Governor Lynch and Attorney General Kelly Ayotte in promoting Stalking Awareness month."

"We are proud to have been invited by the Coalition to support this event in the Governor's Office this Friday." said Past President John Healy. Members of the Association, including State Representative Jordan Ulery, will meet with Amanda Grady later this month in support of this effort and to further offer their services and knowledge to the Coalition.

The Association's 2002 Position Paper on Domestic Violence and Stalking has been given to the Coalition. Amanda Grady, the Coalition's Public Policy Director, said it was "excellent." After reviewing suggestions from the Coalition, the Association made some changes in the paper.

Excerpt from the paper: "This paper has been compiled for the purpose of educating our members and informing the public of the pervasive nature of Domestic Violence and how trained citizens can assist those at risk, the wives, husbands, children, and associates of those affected."

Private investigators are among the mostly highly regulated professions in New Hampshire. The NHLI has developed a presence, and respect, among state lawmakers and New Hampshire Law Enforcement. The NHLI Code of Professional Ethics holds it members to a standard far higher that NH RSA 106-f.

The League is very active in training, and sponsors several training seminars, annually, to inform and educate the membership.

The League is also very active in legislative issues, currently pursuing legislation that will enhance the regulatory scheme and set higher standards and stricter discipline and will combat unlicensed activity. This effort is supported by the House ED&A Committee and the Department of Safety.
