)-- Orange County Private Investigator
and owner of Newport P.I. (a Newport Beach based Detective Agency) was honored with the prestigious Presidents Award from the California Association of Licensed Investigators (CALI). Chris Woodson, CPI received the award from Association President Chris Reynolds for his efforts over the past year working on the Board of Directors. Woodson was instrumental in implementing many new polices, programs, and benefits that have saved CALI tens of thousands of dollars in its yearly budget at the same time increasing the programs and benefits available to its membership. President Reynolds cited Woodson’s hundreds of hours volunteered to help fellow Private Investigators, traveling the State of California to attend individual district meetings, and questioning old practices of spending money which was solved by the outsourcing of programs and having those costs covered by advertising.
Woodson was also elected to the position of Vice President of Investigative Services on the board of directors for CALI where he previously held the position of District Director representing Private Investigators in Orange County. Woodson has been on CALI’s board of directors since 2009 and has served on many committees including having been appointed the Chairman of the Website and Marketing Committee by President Reynolds and his predecessor. Through his work on the website committee Woodson has modernized the CALI website and its membership management database which saves paid staff countless hours and allows Private Investigators to generate business from having an individual profile on the website which allows them to profile their specialties, services, and integrate all this with many new social media services such as blogs, forums, Facebook, LinkedIn and others.
Woodson’s agency, located in Newport Beach, is a boutique but full service Detective Agency with a staff of Private Investigators that are experts in many aspects of Investigations. This helps Newport P.I. fulfill its goal of providing a higher than normal level of service to its clients over other Private Investigation firms.
Woodson comes from a background of local law enforcement. Having honed his Investigative skills as a young Narcotics Police Detective-he realized his strengths lied in Investigations and Public Relations. This in turn made him a natural as a Private Investigator and he now offers his services to the General Public.
Newport P.I. also caters to corporations, small business, and Attorneys providing such services as Surveillance, Background Checks, Loss Prevention, Crisis Management, and many other types of complex Investigations. Woodson also holds the CPI (Certified Private Investigator) designation from CALI.
