Lowell Private Investigator

Massachusetts boasts 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. The city of Lowell, with its population of 107,000, has an unusually high violent crime rate, but it is still rated as safer than 19 percent of United States cities. Of the 36.46 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, 7.42 were violent while only 29.05 were property-related.
