Fort Wayne Private Investigator

The State of Indiana has a population of over 6.5 million residents, and it rates close to the national medians in index crimes reported, including both violent and property crimes. Of the 34.94 annual index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, 3.32 were violent while 31.62 were property-related. This is nearly on par with the national medians of 3.9 and 29.1, respectively. Fort Wayne is one of the larger metropolitan areas in the State, with a population of 256,000 people. It is relatively safe, however, rating better than 17% of U.S. cities. Only 38.44 index crimes were reported in 2011, with 3.07 of those being violent and the other 35.37 being property-related. Despite the relative safety of the city, there is still a need for private investigators who are able to dedicate more time and resources than local law enforcement may have available.
