RIP (South Wales) – Code of Conduct
The primary purpose of any investigation is to establish the facts surrounding reported paranormal activity. The investigation is necessary to establish the facts in evidential form.
The investigation of spontaneous paranormal occurrences involves many difficulties not ordinarily encountered in most forms of scientific research.
As investigators we will collate, assess and attempt to interpret our results and evidence correctly.
Our assurance to you that we will:
Treat any information given to RIP (South Wales) as strictly confidential and not release any such information without your consent
RIP (South Wales) investigators:
Will comply with all conditions and instructions, verbal and written that are given to them
Will pay their own expenses
Are not connected with media in any way, shape or form
Will adhere to the RIP (South Wales) Investigation protocol for the investigation of spontaneous paranormal activity
will not use ouiji boards or anything else to provoke any activity
will have identification to confirm there identity
will not take any drugs or alcohol, we will all have clear heads
Will not commit any act of fraud during any investigation
A field study or vigil is not as a matter of course undertaken during the hours of darkness, for example if phenomena are reportedly taking place during the hours of
2-5 pm there would be little point in an all night vigil at the location. Each case is different and would be judged individually.
It is most important to stress that RIP (South Wales) are not “Ghostbusters”. We do not profess to rid places of the phenomena reported. Our purpose is to investigate, collate and assess reported paranormal activity. We can try to reassure people or provide a greater understanding, possibly referring them to other agencies that can assist them, be it a minister of religion, a counsellor or other suitable persons including credible and trained mediums.
RIP(South Wales) will not carry out any investigations that take place at dangerous locations or places that have no permission. no harm must come to any member of the team.
