Missouri Association of Private Investigators – MAPI – is established to bring together licensed private investigators in Missouri into a single association created by private investigators and for private investigators. The private investigative industry faces many challenges in the 21st century – review of state licensing policies and procedures, developing and maintaining the highest standards in behavior, conduct, and interaction with clients and authorities. The need for expanded opportunities for continuing education cannot be overstated. Interaction and networking among private investigators is paramount if this industry is to move on to the next level. Seasoned investigators are called upon to mentor newly licensed and inexperienced private investigators – thereby passing knowledge onto the next generation. These are the goals and principles behind the Missouri Association of Private Investigators. We at MAPI invite you to join us in our quest to be of great benefit to Missouri licensed private investigators.

St. Louis Police open investigation into fake Private Investigator who investigated MO Governor

The great and professional men and women of the St. Louis Police Department have stepped up to the plate to investigate some very underhanded people.

The St. Louis Police Department has opened an investigation into a fake private investigator who was brought into Missouri to investigate Missouri Governor Greitens. William Tisaby was brought in from the East Coast and was hired by the prosecutor (Kimberly Gardner) who targeted Governor Greitens. Now Tisaby is under investigation for illegal investigation activities and grand perjury in Missouri.

MAPI affirms its respect and full support of the St. Louis Police Department in their investigations of William Tisaby and Circuit Attorney Kimberly Gardner. Hopefully Tisaby will see the value in becoming a 'states witness' against Kimberly Gardner for her grand scheme.

Missouri Black Activist Prosecutor Stacking False Criminal Charges on Missouri Governor

Missouri Black Activist St. Louis Prosecutor, Kimberly Gardner recently decided her contrived criminal charges against Missouri Governor were probably not going to be enough to get a conviction.

Activist Prosecutor Kimberly Gardner has trumped up new charges against Missouri Governor Eric Greitens related to a non-profit the Governor started to raise millions for those less fortunate.

As we have previously reported, St. Louis Black Activist Prosecutor, Kimberly Gardner is on a 'white search and destroy mission' to appease the BLM community because of Greitens hard line stance against the burning and pillaging of St. Louis in 2016/17. Missouri Governor Greitens called out the Missouri DPS and Missouri State Guard to stop the violence against the good people of St. Louis and Ferguson, now there has to be payback by the Democrats and BLM.

Once again, we issue a warning to those who would seek to remove the Governor without due process; we are watching and will investigate those who would seek to harm Greitens and Missouri by manipulating the system for political and financial gain.

Please find the attached news story for background and reference. Fox4kc in Kansas City flat-out lies in its news story wholly distorting the truth. The Fox4kc states Missouri "AG finds evidence of criminal activity" when in fact the AG states openly on the record there may be "POTENTIAL" criminal activity. This act by Fox4kc Kansas City is yet another hatchet job by the news media and part of the Missouri piling on of people by and for BLM and other racial activist supporters.

Hi Pam,

As usual we hope you are well and life is good...

We have attached a link, which is a story on www.moapi.org which speaks to more of the associated details of the original complaint.

Because there are many attorneys or judges involved in this matter directly/indirectly who may or may not have a racial or political interest, we are including complaints to the chief disciplinary counsel incase anyone involved has any ideas about dropping the ball for the aforementioned complaint/s.

We believe our Governor is not being treated fairly in this matter with questionable allegations piling on him, all for political reasons. These same (complaint) referenced people have perpetrated malfeasance to affect an attack/investigation on our Governor through MO 324.1106.

Though the Missouri Open records act § 610.011, RSMo, of the Sunshine - From the date of the MAPI complaint till May 15, 2018- We formally request all documents, memos, emails, text messages, recordings, photos, faxes and phone recordings related to and connected to the OFFICIAL historical chain of custody directly related to my complaint, including but not limited to the Missouri Attorney General’s office, CIU Investigators and Kimberly Gardner. If any documents are being suppressed from my open records act request from any related source, please prepare a list of the same regarding- memo narrative, entities, chains and dates of the same. PLEASE MAKE AVAILABLE THE RESPONSIVE ONGOING RESULTS OF THIS ORAR TO THIS EMAIL. IF THE RESPONSIVE RESULTS OF THIS REQUEST CANNOT BE TRANSMITTED VIA EMAIL, PLEASE MAKE THEM AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION WITH AGREED NOTICE ALONG WITH ANY ANTICIPATED COST FOR THE SAME.



To "Consultant" or to "Independent Contractor" - that is the question...?

A friend and resident of the Left Coast finds solace in the conflicted political scene of Missouri that keeps the media outlets in business selling papers. Indeed, plenty of California and Washington (don’t forget Oregon) forests contribute to the cause with little thanks and appreciation. No worries, there are plenty of trees to go around…or are there? One thought that the political intrigue and the, “He says, She says”, bickering and counter claims was a privileged prize of the Left Coast. While not criticizing the Gateway to the West, one finds confusion, frustration, and opportunity.
A search of the Missouri Website for Contracts and partnerships authorized to do business with the State of Missouri, its counties and circuits, comes up short on information. A search for Consultants with contracts couldn’t be found. What gives? 
What seems to be the biggest dodge of Missouri’s private investigator statutes can be seen without glasses! The myriad out of state “Consultants” morphed into the “Independent Contractors” they aren’t – make a mockery of the Missouri Private Investigative Industry, create an insult to the people of Missouri (See Statute 324.1106 ff), an embarrassment to dedicated retirees working under a false reality that can get them into trouble, and ultimately sheds light on those embroiled in self-serving actions to disenfranchise the good people of Missouri. Let’s not forget Contracts that claim legitimacy outside of the rule of law, Missouri’s bidding and contracting procedures, doesn’t make it right.  Remember the “fruit of the poisonous tree?”
What our friend sees as an outsider is a gaggle of politicians who choose to work at tax payer expense with a single agenda of disenfranchising others through 1920-1930s style of political intrigue. Perhaps our friend meant to say Carpetbaggers.  This doesn’t apply to those honest politicians, like your Governor Eric Greitens, and others who stand up for the people and the constitution, yet are made scapegoats by unscrupulous prosecutors. Who’s next?
Sadly, Missouri and Ferguson in particular has become a hotbed of racial tensions and infighting, which some seek to use for their own political gain at the expense of those battling to do the right thing. Our friend’s mind reminds us of his time in The Watts Riots of 1965.  
Maybe all is not lost. Our friend realizes that he can rest on his laurels and get a job as a Consultant after all. He could get a job working as a Consultant for Loree Anne Paradise, the AG’s deputy chief of staff, and circumvent the bidding and hiring process in Missouri. Who knows? Maybe he can get the same sweet deal the retired bureau guys got working for Kimberly Gardner, Circuit Attorney of St. Louis. What a deal that would be? Ching Ching.
