FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHO IS KEY CITY PARANORMAL SOCIETY?
We are a professional team of investigators. We seek to find the scientific and logical reasons when it comes to paranormal activity. Only through these methods can we find the truth. Do we charge? No. We are a nonprofit group and are available if assistance is needed. Our main goal with each investigation is not only to seek out the paranormal but to educate those that believe that they are experiencing activity.
DO YOU CHARGE FOR AN INVESTIGATION OR SERVICES?
No, no member of KCPS will ever request payment for any services from our group. Our payment is the ability to study this type of activity and to help people understand what is actually going on in the home or business.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT WHEN I CONTACT KCPS
Once you contact KCPS our case manager will contact you and ask you some preliminary questions about your case. At this point, a pre-investigation interview will be scheduled. The pre-investigation interview entails a meeting with two seasoned investigators who will meet with you at your home. Their job is to evaluate the case and how many investigators will be needed.
You should also understand that not every case we investigate is paranormal in nature. We have found that 95-97% of the cases, we can find some environmental, structural, chemical, or biological reason for what you have experienced. But, we also don’t want you to feel you have wasted our time. This is what we do, and our job is to find answers.
This meeting is also your opportunity to ask us questions. We want you to feel comfortable with our practices and us.
I SCHEDULED AN INVESTIGATION... NOW WHAT?
Prior to the investigation, an investigator will research your property in an effort to uncover any significant historic activity that might be relevant to the case. This investigator will provide this information in a report to the lead investigator for the final investigative report.
Upon arrival at your home or business, we conduct a safety tour looking for any hazards. The lead investigator will then sit down with you to fill out confidentiality/liability paperwork. The rest of the team will begin placing equipment in areas where paranormal activity has been reported. We use structured light sensor cameras, digital video cameras, spirit boxes, digital audio recorders, and electro-magnetic field meters (EMF).
Once satisfied with our setup, we will begin the investigation. Our investigators will document anomalous readings and attempt to debunk or look for reasonable explanations for the reported activity.
Expect the investigation to take at least four hours. It could last longer if we are experiencing activity.
Once our goals of the investigation have been satisfied, we will proceed to pack up our equipment and leave your home or business. It usually takes us two weeks to review and analyze the evidence collected. Once finished, we will contact you to reveal our findings. Any evidence collected will be handed over to you along with a written report of the investigation.
**An important note. Any evidence collected by KCPS on any investigation becomes the property of KCPS, and KCPS can distribute that evidence in presentations and through social media. However, KCPS will not disseminate that evidence if it might reveal a client’s identity
CAN I BE THERE WHEN KCPS DOES THE INVESTIGATION?
Yes. We encourage our clients to take part in the investigation if they feel comfortable. One of our founding principles at KCPS is educating the public. This policy has served us well and helped countless people overcome their fears. You should never be afraid to be in your own home.
We do ask that if you want to be involved that you follow the directions of the lead investigator to make sure the correct procedures are followed.
If you do wish to take part in the investigation we do request that you don’t call all of your friends and family. Too many people can contaminate any evidence we collect. We will not be able to investigate under those conditions.
DO YOU PROVOKE SPIRITS LIKE I HAVE SEEN ON TV?
No. We approach all of our investigations with respect. If in fact we are dealing with true paranormal activity, then yelling and screaming is not a reasonable and accepted approach to proper procedures.
I HAVE A PET, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
When we investigate we do use audio and video recorders that are very sensitive. In some cases we use motion detectors as well. We understand your pet is part of the family however if possible we ask that you find a place for your pet to stay for the night. This helps us reduce contamination of the footage recorded.
