1. During investigations, members are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. This includes professionalism to home and business owners at all times.
2. No alcohol is permitted before or during an investigation. No MTPRS member is permitted to use any form of illegal drugs at any time. If alcohol or drug use is suspected, that member will be immediately and permanently dismissed from MTPRS.
3. No perfumes, colognes or other fragrances should be worn during an investigation, as this can interfere with other investigators’ senses.
4. During an investigation, members will respect the property of our host/client. It is each individual’s responsibility to replace or repair any item they damage on an investigation.
5. MTPRS prohibits all members from doing freelance investigations, either as an MTPRS representative or as an individual. All investigative leads that are generated shall be shared with the group and planning for these investigations will be decided by all group members.
6. No children under the age of 18 years are permitted at investigations or to be involved in research with MTPRS. MTPRS tries to schedule investigations around our member’s personal needs; however we may not be able to accommodate all investigations for each and every member. Thus, it is your responsibility to ensure that you have proper childcare arrangements so you can attend investigations.
7. No MTPRS member is permitted to bring guests to an investigation unless there is prior approval from the group. If a guest is permitted to attend, they will also be expected to comply with our bylaws. If they do not agree to do so, they will not be permitted to attend.
8. During an investigation, there will be no smoking inside the location, no horseplay and no profanity. Voices should be kept at a conversational level. If you must smoke, please return to your car or a designated area to do so.
9. Any member who does not attend meetings regularly without a valid excuse will be placed on probation. If attendance does not improve, the member will be dismissed.
10. Members who are absent from pre-investigation briefings will not be permitted to participate in that investigation.
11. MTPRS members shall keep all client information and locations confidential, unless the client has signed a release form. No exceptions.
