Old School Paranormal team member acceptance is primarily based on personality and level of commitment.

 

OSP is a healthy blend of skeptics and believers.  That's what makes us a good team. Our investigators look for logical answers and accept that sometimes there might not be one.  We are also a multi-denominational group that is all-accepting and insist that all of our team members respect each other. 

 

Our team also follows and respects local and state laws when conducting investigations.  Just because they may look “abandoned” doesn't mean we trespass and begin to investigate.  We have a specific protocol in regards to the locations we investigate.

 

While doing an investigation is easily the fun part of being on the team, evidence review can be a time-consuming and sometimes grueling process.  Each member of the team is required to thoroughly review all audio, video and photographic data that they, themselves, gathered during the investigation.  We do believe in the teamwork approach where members help each other out as best as they can in the evidence review portion of an investigation.  It is not uncommon to spend countless hours pouring over evidence for one investigation.

 

Everyone on the team has "regular" jobs and families we support.  When scheduling investigations, in most cases, we find dates that all team members have open on their work and personal calendars. 

 

If chosen to be a member of OSP, you will have the chance to investigate paranormal cases firsthand with the rest of the team.  While owning your own equipment is not mandatory, it is something we consider when determining who will join our team.  Each team member pays for their own equipment and supplies (i.e. batteries) and is responsible for its maintenance.

 

People interested in becoming investigators with OSP must complete the form below.  Your request will be reviewed by the founders of OSP.  They will contact you regarding your application.  Please note:  once you are accepted onto the OSP team, you are required to attend any meetings, seminars and trainings that will include the basics of equipment knowledge and the investigation process.
