Our Roots

Who we are - Our History

Our Labor Organization knows that strength lies not only in the words we stand by but most importantly through the actions of our united collective. Back in 1985, our founding leaders realized that by working together we could overcome challenges much more efficiently, and that is why we ultimately decided to join forces as the ASSOCIATION OF PUBLIC DEFENDER INVESTIGATORS.
