Billings Private Investigator
Despite being one of the largest States in terms of total area, Montana boasts a population of only one million people. Crime rates are lower as a result of the population being so spread out. Violent crimes are reported at 2.67 incidents per 1,000 people, below the national median of 3.9. Property crimes average 23.2 incidents per 1,000 people, also below the national median of 29.1. In the city of Billings, residents account for 105,000 of the state’s population. The crime index there is 11, meaning that Billings is safer than 11% of cities in the United States. Of the 47.39 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, only 2.96 are violent, while 44.43 are property-related. Local law enforcement agencies are working around the clock, but limited resources do not allow them to dedicate the necessary time to solving every case. By hiring a private investigator licensed by ICS, you will know for sure that a highly skilled private investigator will be dedicated to your case and will see it through to the end.
