About NJROPE Paranormal

New Jersey Researchers of Paranormal Evidence (NJROPE) maintains a skeptical view on all claims of paranormal activity. The ultimate goal is to gather evidence to support any claims or questions NJROPE clients provide, meanwhile
looking for alternative reasons to help explain why these claims might be occurring.  NJROPE recognizes that just because an occurrence appears paranormal does not certify that it is. It is the mission of NJROPE to provide an accurate investigation
with hopes that any services provided will allow it’s client to draw an educated self conclusion for their given situations by bridging the gap between this world and the one which co-exists with it. In addition, the team is always striving to evolve and learn new tactics and approaches to assist with the ongoing investigation process and also to become a leader in the paranormal field.

When not investigating, NJROPE participates in Public Awareness functions, charity events and lectures at local libraries or events. The groups goal is to educate the public about the paranormal world. NJROPE has proposed and scheduled a Paranormal Support Group to help those individuals who are being affected by a haunt. The group also has a quarterly magazine called ‘NJROPE Focus’ which is written to put forth information and education through the world wide web.

NJROPE membership is required to attend and complete an intense training protocol, which includes a written exam, so that they are better suited and confidently hold the knowledge to serve the public.
