TAPS promises to bring professionalism, personality, and confidentiality to each case we investigate. We understand that it is tough to call someone like us, and we respect your right to privacy.

We bring recording devices to your home to capture evidence of paranormal activity, but they are only used with the homeowner's permission. We will not share or publish any of the media or any details of the case outside of the close-knit TAPS group. More sensitive cases will be dealt with by the founders and be held under the most strict confidence.

We are not amateurs. We have had extensive experience. Part of what we have learned is the psychology of making someone feel comfortable during these times of fear and uncertainty. We will bring a levelheaded and comfortable atmosphere into your home, in essence, taking care of the most important thing, your discomfort. We will then help you to understand some of the nature of the problem supplying you with the information to understand why this is happening and how little danger is actually involved. We will listen to your experiences and concerns. Then we will set up equipment and begin trying to recreate and debunk personal experiences in an attempt to find good evidence either for or against paranormal activity. We will then share our findings with you and come to a conclusion.

You are welcome to copies of any of the recorded media and our phones are open to you should you continue to need comfort or help.

We do this free of charge. We will not accept any money for this service whatsoever. Any expenses which may arise are covered by the team.

Remember, though we like to have fun, we understand the fear and the seriousness of your situation. We are after all, normal people. Heck, I don't think we even watch Star Trek. ha ha ha.

So, if you are having trouble dealing with paranormal influences in your life, contact TAPS, and we will commit to do our very best to help you.
