Worcester 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. Worcester claims 181,000 of those residents, and it is rated safer than only 13% of United States cities. Of the 44.03 crimes reported per 1,000 residents, 9.99 were violent and 34.05 were property-related. Those high numbers show a great need for private investigators, who will ensure that your case is worked to the very end.
