Monthly Meeting: A Conversation with a Private Investigator

7 p.m. Wednesday, February 9

Southwood Community Center, College Station

Mary Ringo saw one side of the law as the daughter of a small-town police chief, volunteer, and then employee with the Bryan PD, then later in charge of warrants with the College Station Municipal Court, and then with Internal Affairs with the College Station PD. After two decades, she decided to offer services to both sides of the law, so she received her Private Investigator License and started Gumshoe Investigative Services in College Station. She will speak about the difference between police detection versus being a P.I.–how they are similar, how they’re different, and how one transitions from one to the other.
