Can a ghost follow me?
Dec. 1, 2009
It depends on the circumstances. In some cases a family member is hanging around, this is what we call a visitation haunting. These type of hauntings usually happen immediately after death and slow down over time. Although they can last longer and happen to several family members(sometimes at once) over long distances. Other situations where an entity may "follow" revolve around an object not a person. There have been many cases where people who have bought used items at flea markets or antique shops, start experiencing paranormal phenomena after bringing these items home. Hauntings occur due to an attachment, this may be to a house, location, person or an object.

Can I join PPS?
Dec. 1, 2009
Currently we are not looking to increase the size of our team, one of our advantages is that we don't bring too many on an investigation. Our team size is proportionate to our caseload. If you would like to be considered when we do decide we need more team members you can contact us and we will supply you with an application. We have pretty tight rules that all members must adhere to, we also want people who will be there when needed. This is not a 1 time a year hobby for us, we have spent lots of time and money bringing this group to where it is today.

Can you investigate my house?
Dec. 1, 2009
The first step is for someone to contact us through our website. Under our contacts page there is an area where you can "REPORT A HAUNTING" this will ask general questions about what is happening. We will then contact the homeowners about what they are experiencing, their history and the history of the home. From there we will most likely do a walkthrough and take baseline readings of temperature and EMF, we will also have several recorders going at this time. After we assess the initial evidence, the feelings of the homeowners we will decide if a case is worth further investigation.

Have you ever heard of (INSERT HAUNTED LOCATION HERE)? you should investigate because (INSERT STORY OF HAUNTING HERE).
Dec. 1, 2009
We are very knowledgeable about the popular haunted locations in the area and would love the opportunity to investigate them all. However as we try to separate ourselves from the other groups we do not A.) trespass onto a property B.) go anywhere without being invited first C.) Repeatedly ask these locations to investigate, these locations (being as popular as they are) are hounded by the many teams and groups of thrill seekers to the point that they won't let anybody investigate. We pride ourselves in being different than most groups and if invited to investigate some of these locations, we will happily oblige. If you or someone you know could gain legal access to a haunted location please contact us.

How can an EMF meter be used to detect ghosts?
Dec. 9, 2009
Actually the EMF gauges and K2 meters we use don't really detect ghosts. A lot of groups may tell you otherwise though. There is a theory that ghosts are energy and therefore produce an electro-magnetic field a similar theory suggests that ghosts need electro-magnetic fields in order to manifest. Both of these theories suggest that finding a spike on an EMF meter will indicate the presence of a spirit. Currently neither of these have been proven so we at PPS are using these tools in hopes to gather evidence that supports these theories. Probably more importantly is the fact that these meters give us the ability to find natural reasons for some claims.

How exactly did you get into investigating the paranormal?
Dec. 1, 2009
We all came to this field for different reasons mostly a common goal to understand what happens when we die. Some of our team members want to find a scientific explanation while others are looking for an answer that may verify their religious beliefs.

I understand that a spirit may drain the battery of equipment being used. Why you can't just place a car battery in the middle of the room for the spirit to use?
Dec. 1, 2009
We have found that battery drain which defies normal explanation usually involves batteries which are currently in use in a circuit, (camcorders, digital recorders, flashlights, etc.) while batteries in our case remain fresh. Often when the drain is evident and can be tied to corresponding evidence on other equipment, the drain is not complete and the battery level returns. We typically do not place too much reliance on battery drain events unless we can either substantiate a paranormal event by other means, or if several pieces of equipment exhibit similar drains. We, as I am sure everyone has at one time opened new packages of batteries only to find that one or more cells are already discharged. Debunking apparent paranormal events must also include our own equipment. High EMF (Electro-Magnetic Fields) can, if not proven to come from an earthly source indicate an area where paranormal activity may occur. The "Fear Cage" scenario produced by high EMF conditions is currently believed to not only produce adverse feelings in those who are sensitive to them, but can also act as a power source for entities to utilize. A freestanding battery, as in your car battery scenario produces no EMF field. There are kits available which generate powerful ion sprays, allowing a localized power source for a potential entity to use. It has exposed circuitry which if accidentally touched could have disastrous results. For this reason, we do not recommend their use.

I've heard different terms for ghosts (spooks, spirits, etc) is there a difference?
Dec. 9, 2009
We have definitions for these terms on our TERMS/DEFINITIONS page but basically they are just different words meaning the same thing, the "soul or spirit of a deceased person, which appears or otherwise makes its presence known to the living"

What is a poltergeist?
Dec. 9, 2009
Surprisingly tv shows, movies, websites, and other paranormal groups do not explain poltergeists accurately. We follow the following definition which is the most widely accepted theory among para-psychologists and paranormal investigators. Poltergeist (German for “Noisy Ghost”) activity more than likely is not a ghost/spirit driven event. Most poltergeist labeled activity are actually psychokinetic events caused by a human agent. Usually a pre-pubescent female. The hormonal activity and tumultuous emotions associated with that age is believed to be the cause. In most cases the youth is unaware that he/she is causing the phenomena and learning of this may cause an increase in activity due to higher stress levels. The safest way to “deal” with the situation would be to take away anything that could cause stress to the agent. If you feel that this may be happening don’t hesitate to contact us, we will gladly offer guidance and offer help to relieve the situation.

What is a typical investigation like?
Dec. 1, 2009
Its not at all like you see on tv where editing and sound effects change the entire feel of what is going on. Our investigations can last anywhere from 5 to 10 hours or more depending on the level of activity. Since most of our evidence comes in the form of audio there are many times when it feels like there is nothing going on that is until we review the evidence.
