Huntsville Private Investigator

The State of Alabama boasts a population of 4.8 million people, and its crime rates are close to the national medians in both categories of index crimes – violent and property. Of the 40.26 index crimes reported annually per 1,000 residents (compared to 33.0 national median), 4.20 are violent and 36.06 are property crimes. Nationally, the median for violent crimes committed per 1,000 residents is 3.9, while property crimes have a median report rate of 29.1. Huntsville, one of the larger cities in the State with a population of 183,000, rates safer than only 5% of U.S. cities. Of the 62.75 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, 8.36 were violent and 54.39 were property-related. These numbers are substantially higher than the state and national medians.
