    About us

    ADA Bureau of Investigations has been in business for nearly 8
    years and employs nearly 10 private investigators. We are
    licenced in Vermont, New Hampshire, and South Carolina and
    specialize in surveillance type investigations.

    James G. Murphy, Chief Executive Officer and President,
    founded Murphy’s Detective Agency in 2000 following 5 years
    of service as a Private Investigator for another agency. In 1995
    he retired from law enforcement with 33 years of service during
    which time he served as an elected Sheriff for 18 years. He is a
    past president of the National Sheriff's Association and is the
    Past President of the Vermont Association of Investigative &
    Security Services. He holds degrees from the University of
    Southern California, FBI Academy, Babson College, Champlain
    College and the Vermont Police Academy along with numerous
    awards and commendations for his outstanding work in the
    Criminal Justice and investigative fields. Jim supports and is the
    proud member of many outstanding local organizations
    including the Masonic Order of Masons, Shriners, Elks Club,
    Scottish Rite, York Rite, Vermont Referees Association,
    Vermont Umpires Association, Vermont Basketball Association,

    Jim's son, Patrick, is the lead investigator and has been with
    the company for  6 years. Patrick holds 2 college degrees from

    Officer and is responsible for new business, advertising, and
    computer based investigations. Patrick is also currently the

    Security Services.

    Some of our investigators are former law enforcement officers,
    which allows us to offer a great background and foundation for
    our clients. All of our investigators must complete extensive
    training in every area that we offer prior to being able to
    perform investigations. We seek out only the most qualified
    and highly respected individuals to become investigators. Our
    investigations typically produce great results and thats due to
    our extensivOur company belongs to several organizations including
    Vermont Association of Investigative and Security Services
    (VAISS), National Association of Investigative Services (NAIS),
    New Hampshire League of Investigators (NHLI), South Carolina
    Association of Legal Investigators (SCALI), and International

    In 2007 after major expansion to our company, we changed the
    name of the business from Murphy's Detective Agency to ADA
    Bureau of Investigatione training.
