Beckie Smith founded the organization as “Corpus Christi Paranormal Group” in 1999. From 1999 to Present CCPG has conducted many investigations, as well as, helped in consultations via email and telephone. CCPG is on it's way to becoming a non-profit organization (501 (c)(3)) and will never charge for its services. The members themselves support us.

Investigation Protocol

NO member of CCPG will ever charge a fee to conduct an investigation. No member will accept a gift of money or other value for their personal gain for any service performed as a member of CCPG.

1. NEVER Trespass: Watch out for any posted warning signs. Always ask for permission before going onto someone else's property. Avoid all areas where access is prohibited. Trespassing will only get you thrown in jail or worse. Be careful.

2. NEVER Litter: Leave the area exactly as you found it. Pick up any trash, containers, and scraps of paper and tape. Wipe off any chalk marks unless the site is a secluded area and you plan on returning.

3. NEVER Go alone: Have at least one partner on ghost hunts. Even if the person doesn't know anything about ghost hunting. This provides a little more safety and also a witness to any strange events that might occur. If you're alone and there's an unforeseen accident or emergency, who will help?

4. NEVER Forget to Carry ID: If the police ever question you about being in a private area, you will need some form of picture identification. Preferably a divers license. They do have the right to ask any citizen for an ID and if you don't have one they also have the right to detain you for questioning.

5. NEVER Forget to tell people where you are: Tell someone where you'll be at and how long you plan on being gone. If you run late in the ghost hunt, call and explain the situation. Never leave friends or loved ones wondering where you are.

6. NEVER Record false equipment readings: Test all of your equipment several times before leaving on an investigation. Replace batteries as needed. Learn to correctly use all of the equipment before even thinking about trying to use them in the field. Remember to take background readings at the site.

7. NEVER Go to a site for your first visit at night: Thoroughly check over the site in the daylight for any dangerous obstacles that may be invisible in the darkness.

8. NEVER Smoke, drink alcohol or use drugs: Don't do anything that will impair your judgment or infect the site's environment. Use common sense.

9. NEVER Wear colognes, after shave, or perfumes: Never wear anything that creates a noticeable odor. The smells may infect other ghost hunter's judgments. The air needs to be clear to detect any abnormal odors. Some outside ghost hunts may require mosquito repellants. Use odor free bug sprays. Log their use.

10. NEVER Forget to carry a notebook: Everything needs to be recorded and logged. No detail is too small. Keep lists of events, actions, and times. Record with audio and video if possible.

11. NEVER Forget to wear a watch: This goes along with the Logbook. You can't record times if you don't know what time it is.

12. NEVER Whisper: Always speak clearly, especially if you're recording the ghost hunt. You don't want to later confuse your whispering as something supernatural. If there are ghosts around your voice is not going to scare them off.

13. NEVER Forget to do research and profiles: To many ghost hunters don't do the proper research before going out into the field. What they are failing to understand is that good research will only help them with the possibilities of seeing a ghost.

14. NEVER Use a car's headlights as a main source of light: Sometimes a car's headlights come in handy for setting up campsites or equipment, but don't use them as a long-term light source. You could drain the battery enough that the car will not start.

15. NEVER Try to bring everything: Don't try to carry along every piece of equipment. Just bring the basics and the equipment that you absolutely need. Getting bogged down will only take your attention away from the ghost hunt.

16. NEVER Forget to bring flashlights: Always have plenty of working flashlights. Everyone should have two flashlights on hand.

17. NEVER Forget extra batteries: Know what kind of batteries each piece of equipment takes and how to change them. Always carry extra sets of batteries.

18. NEVER Forget to take lots of pictures: Take as many photographs as you can. That goes the same for video. You can't have enough of either. Just keep an eye on your film supplies. Don't run out before the ghost hunt is over. Always have emergency rolls of film.

19. NEVER Forget to bring food and drinks: It may sound trivial, but you would be surprised how many ghost-hunts have been ruined or have been cut short because of the lack of snacks.

20. NEVER Go into any physically dangerous location: It may be temping to conduct ghost hunts in old condemned buildings or on the edge of a spooky cliff side, but don't do it. The risk is simply not worth it. Also, never go to any place when the weather conditions are bad. Ghost hunts are meant to be fun and it won't be fun if someone gets hurt, has to go to the hospital, or worse.

21. No smoking. The possibility of it being photographed and mistaken for ectoplasm is high. In addition, if you're too busy inhaling that acrid tobacco smoke, your nose is dead to any paranormal smells you might encounter.

22. Be open-minded. If you think there are no ghosts, then obviously for you there won't be. Skeptics bring negative energy that could compromise an investigation.

23. Either remove the camera strap or wear it around your neck. It's amazing how many times camera straps have been mistaken for ghostly photos. In keeping with that theme, make sure long hair is pulled back, and all fingers are away from the camera lens

24. In cold weather, hold your breath while taking a photo. I've seen so many photos of "ectoplasm" that was nothing more than breath in cold air.

25. Remember you are out there to record paranormal activity and to have fun. But DO NOT be disrespectful in areas such as graveyards or battlefields. No horseplay or loud obnoxious behavior.

26. No Ouija boards

27. Talk to the spirits and ask for their permission to take their photo. I also try an explain that I'm not there to be disrespectful but that I am trying to understand them.
