Joplin Private Investigator
Nick-named “The Show-Me State,” Missouri is considered the gateway to the west. With a population of just over six million residents and a median household income of less than $47,000, Missouri is not one of the most populous, nor is it one of the wealthiest, States in America. Its crime rates are slightly higher than the national medians, however, in terms of index crimes. These include both violent and property crimes. The State reported 37.56 index crimes per 1,000 residents last year, of which 4.47 were violent and 33.09 were property-related, compared to the national medians of 3.9 and 29.1, respectively. The small city of Joplin, with a population of just over 50,000 residents, has some of the highest crime rates in the State. Safer than only two (2) percent of U.S. cities, there were 4.98 violent and 70.93 property-related crimes reported per 1,000 residents in 2011. Known best for a devastating tornado that took the lives of over 160 people and caused $2.8 billion worth of property damage in 2011, Joplin has a great need for private investigators. Investigators within the ICS network are qualified and experienced for all types of investigations.
