The California Association of Law Enforcement Background Investigators is dedicated to the improvement of background investigations within law enforcement. The purpose of the organization is to facilitate and increase the quality and effectiveness of entry level background investigations through knowledge and evaluation of relevant federal and state laws, and to promote cooperation among member law enforcement agencies.

In the furtherance of these goals CALEBI provides training classes throughout the year in different locations throughout the state. Instructors come from all ranks of law enforcement including POST and Private Sector that provide services to law enforcement agencies.

CALEBI has been organized as a professional organization since 1979. The association consists of an elected President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and three directors at large.

Members receive an established network of other agencies and members who can provide information and assistance to help them and their agencies stay on top of the latest developments in background investigation techniques, laws and procedures.
