Hi everyone I have been a tad late on responding to some of the comments left for us on the posts we have made. First off the New Westminster School post. We have recieved a notable responce that the story that was posted was not real or correct.

We thank you for letting us know that it seems to be just a story and yes that may be true. But we also post ghost stories that are just that ghost stories. Its seems we have upset a few people and we appoligize for that.

We also noted the responce to the chinlac murder site. apperently this was spelt wrong. But once again it was just a ghost story we heard of and shared. So first off the spelling as we have been told is Chun-lac. We would again like to learn more.

NPI will be looking into these further very soon. while we do Please send us your write up on how thes tails might have happend and how it has become what it has.

You can send them to the following and we will post it on our blog thanks.

VPI guest investigator

Last year NPI had a public reveal at the historic Vancouver Police Museum. We had a number of VIP people join us for the night of which 2 won an opportunity to join NPI on a later investigation. One of those winners recently joined us at the historic Bernie Legge Theatre in New Westminster BC. Here is her experience.


NPI Paranormal Investigation Experience

Recently my partner and I had the rare experience to join the NPI team on a paranormal investigation they were doing in the New Westminster area, and what an experience it was. We had won the opportunity as VIP’s at the Vancouver Police Museum’s reveal of what the team had experienced in that building during an investigation back in the fall.
Having had experiences myself in the past with loved ones reaching out and a possible inherited ghost cat in our house, I am a believer but also a cautious skeptic. I was looking forward to hearing some of the others personal experiences which they openly shared with us.
Right from the very beginning of the evening, the team was incredibly welcoming and shared their wealth of knowledge not only about the property but also about their process and the impressive array of equipment they use. While the team set up, Ken gave us a tour of the venue and explained the extensive history of the building. Having that knowledge in our minds, I believe, added to the experience of being in the space and feeling the energies it held.
Once all the gear was set up and the lights went out, the night really got going. I was fascinated by the types of questions the team asked and the background they had on specific entities that have been known to inhabit or visit the property. The range of prompts for activity from the team really blew me away. I, of course, have the movie or television stereotypes in mind, knowing it’s not really like that but I did find the range of questions and the approach of each team member incredibly interesting.
We started our first EVP session on the main floor of the building and spent approx half an hour there, reaching out to anyone wanting to come forward and make contact with us. There were a few instances of cold breezes and shadows as well as individuals feeling chills or ringing in their ears. The ringing in the ears was something I had not known to be an indication of activity. Again, fascinating.

After that, we headed into the basement portion of the property. Now I should say here that the overall feeling in this building, for me, was not one of danger or evil. It’s an exciting and energetic environment from day to day and I never felt anything threatening…until toward the end of the evening and I’ll get to that. Our second EVP session was held in one half of the basement. There seemed to be a fair bit of activity in this part of the building. Many of the team members began to feel different types of activity, not all of it positive . Once we wrapped that session we took a small break to chat about what occurred in the basement and how everyone was feeling. I could tell there was excitement but also a little apprehension to head into the other half of the basement based on the feelings from the last session. This portion of the building had a slightly darker past. We set up in this space and turned the lights out. Almost right away, a K2 EMF reader positioned over the head of team member Nikki started to spike.

The meter did this throughout the session. At times it seemed to spike in response to certain questions. This was the space I started to feel uncomfortable in. Many of the members were getting feelings of an unhappy and possibly malevolent spirit. A few of the members were responding to darker feelings and therefore starting to ask more intense questions in a more forceful tone. At that point, for me, the mood changed. I believe I was feeling what the others were more in-tuned to and that energy was making me incredibly anxious. We ended that session and headed back upstairs to catch our breath and share our experiences from that space. A smaller group of NPI team returned to the basement to carry out one more session to finish out the evening.
And that concluded our time with NPI team. I cannot thank Darryl, Nikki, Holly, Connie, Ken, Mike, Bev, Ray and the people at the venue for allowing us to tag along on such an amazing experience. I look forward to hearing and seeing any of the additional material the equipment was able to pick up during our investigation.

Between all the members of the NPI team, the wealth of knowledge and experience is vast and for them to share that with completely inexperienced newbies was such a treat.
If you ever get the opportunity to join an investigation, I highly recommend you grab the chance.

Thanks again,
Nicole

 Past investigatios at VPM

Hi I am Darryl Pearson the founder of NPI In the last few years myself and fellow NPI members have had the pleasure of looking into one of the coolest places in the lower mainland of BC. This is not only historic in nature but also tied tightly to the best and worst parts on history when it comes to Vancouver.

Now you may ask "The worst". Yes and I can say this because the location I refer to is the Vancouver Police Museum. So you can understand that in certain ways some of the best but also the worst cases, Deaths and crimes have passed through the doors of this location.

NPI has wondered the halls and rooms of the V.P.M a few times and in that time we have experienced, heard, felt and seen more then a few oddities. Are they paranormal or was it just us? This question racked our minds for a while after our first investigation. However these questions only lasted a few days upon review of our recordings and videos taken that night.

We all sat for hours glued to our head phones and computers watching and listening for that small bit of possible evidence. It was not long before we sat in stunned silence looking at each other wondering which was going to be the first person the say "what the hell was that" ?
Yes we had discovered what we thought might happen and that was activity did exists. But we definitely were not ready for some of the things we heard.

Now NPI is moving into another investigation at the V.P.M. and even though we now have an idea of what seems to be there. We are still excited to learn more and get that evidence that we can tie into history.

The Vancouver Police Museum is a great place to visit and they have lots of awesome things to do for both the young and old. They are none profit and always welcome a small donation when visiting. Oh and one small thing to be aware of. When you visit and happen to wonder into the autopsy room. listen carefully you just may hear the pitter patter of bare feet on the tile floor. We did :)

Vancouver Police Museum


The Vancouver Police Museum is a fascinating part of Vancouver's history and one of the favourite investigation locations of NPI. This beautiful building dates back to 1932 and is designated an official Vancouver Heritage Building. It was once used as a hospital in 1935 during the Battle of the Ballantyne Pier. It also served as the Coroner’s Court and autopsy facility (until 1980) and the City Analyst’s laboratory (until 1996). 

Inside the museum is a wide array of exhibits, including those that explore the foundations of Vancouver's police force, and its current-day initiatives, such as gang control. 

One of the most popular attractions is the original Coroner's Court morgue and autopsy facility. This historical setting also plays host to "True Crimes" which goes beyond the headlines to highlight the scientific and investigative techniques used to solve some of Vancouver’s most chilling crimes; an exciting display featuring real evidence and artefacts from several of Vancouver's high-profile cases such as the Castellani Milkshake Murder and Errol Flynn’s autopsy.

To date, the museum staff have curated a selection of approximately 20,000 historical artefacts, including confiscated weapons, counterfeit currency, photographs, paperwork, and vintage police vehicles. Currently, 40 percent of the collection is on display in the museum’s several exhibits.

The museum also offers educational programs such as walking tours and a two-hour forensic-science program. During this program, guests scour a faux crime scene for clues and try to prevent the brash, young rookie cop from running off into the night to find the perpetrator.
There are also many other fun activities to enjoy, such as criminal artist sketching stations and educational video games. 

For history buffs and crime buffs alike, The Vancouver Police Museum is well worth a visit.

Decisions


Which is better? 

 So recently I have read a few write ups on experts in the paranormal field. Now I for one must agree that there are no experts in our field. How ever there are people that have a great deal more experience, through many years investigating and researching the paranormal realm. Even these people are buy no means experts but they do have a learned knowledge gained over time. Thus, these people are always great to listen to and learn from.

 There are some that claim to be experts and of course do events and charge money for said events which is fine if in fact they do things ethically and honestly. But as we all know the ethics and honesty sometimes wains when fame and fortune set in. When this happens, these “experts” do more harm then good and that is a loss. This affects not only the paranormal community but the people that believe them due to their standing.
But these experts come and go over & over again and people soon learn who to trust and who not to. Sometimes this takes to long time to see but it happens. Just be aware of what you hear and know there are no absolutes in the paranormal realm.

 Now there is one other Item I wish to address. That is the claim that some groups are scientific and some are spiritual and the scientific approach is the correct one. Please be aware that there is not one way that has proven to be better then any other as of this time and year.

Teams that claim to be spiritual and use nothing but their own feeling are probably not you best team to get a proper investigation done by. But to have sensitives on board never hurts and at times have found they can guide an invest in directions that have lead to some incredible findings.

BUT teams that claim to be all scientific and say they only use proven scientific approaches to there invests are also not the ideal team to be investigated by. Being that there are no known scientifically proven methods to say these are the absolute ways to prove or disprove the existence of spirits or ghosts. Of course, these groups can and do supply some great methods using instruments and technology to help show that a lot of unexplained events are explainable.

 So now we are left with which is the correct team to go with?  Over time I have discovered that a combination of these two seem to work well. In all there are great teams all over the world. Teams that are not stuck on one format or the other is one I would recommend. After all are goal is to supply any location or client with the best possible evidence and or answers to their questions and concerns. But once again there is no absolutes in this field so always try to maintain an open mind. And good luck.
