Springfield 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. In Springfield, however, with a population of 153,000, the crime rates are notably higher. Safer than only six (6) percent of U.S. cities, there were a staggering 10.34 violent crimes reported per 1,000 residents and 48.91 property crimes. Both numbers are substantially higher than the state and national medians, and they indicate a dire need for supplemental investigative resources.
