HISTORY OF W.A.D
WORLD ASSOCIATION OF INVESTIGATORS
A GLOBAL ALLIANCE OF INVESTIGATORS AND SECURITY PROFESSIONALS-With origins dating back to 1921, W.A.D. is the longest established and largest association of its kind in the world.
HISTORY OF THE ASSOCIATION
In 1950, the World Secret Service Association, Inc. was formed as a joint venture by the combines membership of the International Secret Service Association (founded in 1921) and the World Association of detectives (founded in 1925). At our annual conference in August 1966 in San Antonio, Texas, USA, our present name was unanimously approved by amendment, reverting to the name of "world Association of Detectives."
W.A.D remains the foremost International Association of professional Investigators and Security Service organizations. We have the history and strength to give the best service to our members.
The inexorable march of data protection legislation has created a minefield that lies in wait for even the most experienced investigator, particularly those engaged in international work. If you are involved in international investigations then you need W.A.D to help you. W.A.D. also needs your help in order to strengthen our profession. A larger membership and more money to fight restrictive legislation.
