Albuquerque Private Investigator

The State of New Mexico has a population of over 2 million people, and it is well above the national median in both violent and property crimes.  With over 85,000 offenses reported last year, there was an average of 40.99 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents, compared to 33.0 nationally.  Broken down, there were 5.68 violent crimes and 35.32 property crimes, compared to 3.9 and 29.1 nationally, respectively.  In Albuquerque specifically, the rates are even higher.  The City rates safer than only 6% of U.S. cities, with 7.73 violent crimes and 51.80 property crimes reported per 1,000 residents annually.  Because of the high population and the high crime rates, it is clear that the city does not have the necessary resources to fully support its law enforcement agencies.  As a result, private investigators such as those licensed by ICS are even more critical to solving your case.
