Boston Private Investigator

Massachusetts has a population of well over 6.5 million people, but its crime rates are notably lower than most States. Of the 26.87 index crimes – meaning both violent and property crimes – reported per 1,000 residents last year, 4.28 were violent and only 22.59 were property-related. These compare to the national medians of 3.9 and 29.1, respectively. One of the largest cities in the United States and the capital of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Boston claims 625,000 of those residents within its borders. With such a high population density comes higher crime rates, however, and Boston rates safer than only 15% of United States cities. There were 8.84 violent crimes and 32.65 property crimes reported per 1,000 residents last year, both markedly higher than the State and national medians. As such, local law enforcement is stretched to its limits trying to keep up. By hiring a private investigator such as those licensed in the ICS global network, you can be sure that a highly skilled, experienced professional is dedicated to your case.
