Local Raleigh Private Investigator

The State of North Carolina boasts a population of over 9.65 million people, but its crime rates are relatively low compared to other such highly populated areas. Statewide, there were over 374,000 index crimes reported in 2011, which include both violent and property crimes. This averages out to 38.77 crimes per 1,000 residents, broken down with 3.5 violent and 35.27 property crimes, compared to 3.9 and 29.1 nationally, respectively. Raleigh’s crime rates are close to par with the state medians, with its population of over 416,000. Of the 37.17 crimes reported, 4.18 were violent and 32.99 were property crimes.
