Code of Conduct


At Pittsburgh Paranormal Research, we are not your everyday investigation group. We are fully dedicated to bringing scientific investigation techniques into the field of the paranormal and we conduct ourselves in a manner that is both professional and organized. Below you will find several of the committments that we at PPR have agreed to abide by in all aspects of how we run an investiation. If you have questions regarding anything listed here. Please use the Contact Us form with the subject “Codes”.

  1. PPR will conduct themselves in an appropriate and responsible manner at all times.
  2. PPR and guest investigators will be respectful of other investigators, clients, visitors and guests.
  3. Attendees may not be under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drugs during any PPR investigation, event or meeting.
  4. Participants in any PPR investigation, meeting or event will be respectful of public and private properties at all times.
  5. Participants in any PPR investigation, meeting or event will obey all local, state, and federal laws, by-laws and regulations.
  6. Any guest attendee of a PPR investigation, meeting or event participates voluntarily and takes full responsibility for his or her own safety and welfare. (PPR accepts no responsibility for any loss or damage to any attendee’s property or for any injury to guest attendees howsoever caused.)
  7. Investigation participants must be 18 years old or over unless the PPR authorizes otherwise in writing.
  8. Absolutely no discussing cases outside of PPR when a Client wishes to remain anonymous!
  9. We do not invite friends or family members to investigations unless otherwise preauthorized by either Scott or Jeff.
  10. No one may ever organize or carry out any investigation under the PPR name unless you are authorized to do so by the Lead Investigator in writing.
  11. PPR will never charge a client a fee for an investigation. If offered some monetary amount for expenses accrued, we will accept with gratitude.
  12. Participants in any PPR investigation, meeting or event will be respectful of all equipment owned by team members, guests or PPR.
  13. No one will ever fake paranormal activity, falsely claim to experience anything, or falsify any images, recordings or data etc. This will permanently ban one from ever participating in any future investigation, meeting, or PPR event. We are researchers, not entertainers.
  14. All cellular phones, non-investigation wireless equipment, and other electronics will be switched OFF, “NOT Airplane Mode”.
  15. There will be absolutely NO SMOKING in investigation areas except in areas designated by the Lead Investigator.
  16. PPR will always give an honest, non-biased, objective opinion to the client following an investigation. We will advise whether we feel paranormal activity has indeed occurred during the investigation. Although we have no wish to disappoint, should we feel that, at the time of the investigation, no paranormal activity has occurred, or we are able to debunk to our satisfaction any event, then the client will be informed accordingly.
  17. Although there will always be consultation with Core Team Members with regard to the running of PPR (cases, membership applications, etc.) the final decisions will always be made by the founders of PPR.
  18. All team members and guests attending an investigation must risk assess the location prior to the investigation taking place. Any health and safety issues must be brought to the attention of the Lead Investigator and any attending guests will be informed therein before the investigation.
  19. All PPR investigation members will keep an account for where they are at all times within the boundaries of the investigation area. In cases where an investigator is to carry out a lone vigil, the area must be risk assessed.
