Wood River Private Investigator
With its population of nearly 13 million people, the State of Illinois is on par with the national medians in terms of crime rates.

Of the 31.18 crimes per 1,000 residents that averages, 4.29 were violent and 26.89 were property crimes, compared to 3.9 and 29.1 nationally. Wood River, despite its population of only 10,000 people, is actually on the higher end of the crime rate spectrum for the State. There were 2.54 violent and 44.24 property crimes reported annually per 1,000 residents. When local law enforcement lacks the manpower and the resources to investigate every lead, it highlights the need for private investigators.
