Bismarck Private Investigator
Despite a population of nearly 700,000 people, the State of North Dakota is on the low end of the spectrum in terms of crime rates. In 2011, just under 15,000 index crimes were reported, which averages 21.84 annually per 1,000 residents. Of those, 2.47 are violent crimes (compared to 3.9 nationally), and 19.37 are property crimes (compared to 29.1 nationally). In Bismarck, the rates are a little higher than the State median, though it is still rated safer than 23% of U.S. cities. Violent crimes are reported at 2.65 annually per 1,000 residents, while property crimes are slightly above the median at 29.76 annually per 1,000 residents. But having a relatively low crime rate does not diminish the need for additional resources for investigating and solving crimes. Employing a private investigator such as those licensed by ICS, you are guaranteed to get the professional best efforts of a highly trained and dedicated private investigator, who will supplement local law enforcement.
The State of North Dakota Private Investigation and Security Board licenses and regulates private investigators statewide.
