Long Island Paranormal Investigators:
Paranormal Investigation Approach and Process


The following describes the approach used by Long Island Paranormal Investigators when responding to requests for  investigations. This method has been developed by LIPI based on proven scientific and quantitative research methods to establish a high degree of accuracy and authenticity. Our methods are under constant review and improvement as more is learned about this fascinating field.

We provide this information of our methods to help you understand our approach to paranormal investigation and to be aware of what LIPI does, how we do it, and what we will request of you before, during, and after the investigation. Please note this is not a comprehensive list as each investigation situation is unique and additional steps, documentation, meetings etc. may be required on a case-by-case basis. Subject to change without notice.

In all situations the information you provide is kept strictly confidential and will only be shared with others outside our group upon your approval.

Step 1: Initial Interview

If Long Island Paranormal Investigators accepts your request for an investigation the first step is to perform an initial interview with you and any other persons involved (such as other family members, whether or not they too have experienced the paranormal activity). The interview is best conducted at the location to be investigated. A small LIPI team consisting of a Lead Investigator, Case Manager, a Technical Specialist and possibly other investigators will be part of this initial interview.

If you have any documentation of paranormal activities (pictures, sound or video recordings, physical evidence etc) please have them available for us to review. We may ask to bring back the documentation for us to review to help determine what activity could be taking place and to help plan the investigation. Please have copies available if possible.

Step 2: Review Interview

After the initial interview, the information gathered will be reviewed by the entire Long Island Paranormal Investigators group. If the we determine a full paranormal investigation is warranted we will contact you again to arrange a time for the investigation that is convenient for you and us. LIPI reserves the right to decline, cancel or abort an investigation at any time for any reason.

While we know that events in life can come up unexpectedly, please make every effort to be able to keep the investigation appointment. In agreeing to perform an investigation Long Island Paranormal Investigators has to schedule personnel and equipment that can be difficult to reschedule. Please make every effort to keep the investigation appointment and, if unable to keep the appointment, please notify LIPI as soon as possible.

Step 3: The Investigation

In most cases our paranormal investigation will be performed at night and in lights out conditions. LIPI will bring our own equipment including cameras, video and audio recorders, electronic sensors, and lighting. When the LIPI investigation team arrives we will briefly review the area, inquire if any thing new has occurred or changes since our last discussion with you, then assemble our equipment. This may include running wires for video and audio throughout the location, setting up cameras and records at various spots, and placing sensors in the area.

The investigation itself will usually run several hours depending on the size of the location, the times and places activity has been reports (for example, if events seem to occur mainly from midnight to 3am that would be the primary period of interest for us to be investigating), and other factors. During the investigation we ask that a minimum number of people be at the location and remain quiet in a single spot. People moving around can cause sound and other disturbances that can adversely effect our equipment or possibly cause false readings to be recorded. Also, if there are any free-roaming pets (e.g. dogs, cats etc) please confine them to a single place during the investigation.

At the conclusion of the investigation LIPI will dismantle our equipment and depart as quietly as possible.

Step 4: Evidence Review and Analysis

The members of LIPI will review and analyze the evidence we have gathered during the investigation. This process can take anywhere from several days to a week or more depending on the quantity of evidence we have collected and our case load & schedule.

During the review and analysis we may contact you with additional questions or for clarification.

Step 5: Presentation of Our Findings

When we have concluded our review and analysis LIPI will contact you to arrange a time to meet where the results of the investigation can be presented. Any photographs, video, audio, sensor readings and personal experiences gathered during the investigation that may show paranormal activity will be presented to you. A written report with our findings and conclusions will also be provided to you.

After we have concluded our investigation and presented the evidence we collected, if you have any further questions or would like a follow up investigation Long Island Paranormal Investigators will be happy to provide assistance as our schedule permits.
