Cambridge Private Investigator

Massachusetts, with its population of well over 6.5 million people, enjoys relatively low crimes rates when compared to the other 49 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. In Cambridge, the residents account for 106,000 of the State’s population, and its crime rates come in safer than 13% of U.S. cities. Of the 43.09 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, 4.70 were violent and 38.39 were property-related. This shows a heightened need for supplemental resources and manpower in investigations.
