Fargo 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, fewer than 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).  Fargo, with its population of 107,000, is rated safer than 27% of cities in the United States.  Of the 29.45 index crimes reported per 1,000 residents in 2011, 3.58 were violent and 25.87 were property crimes, both below the national medians.  Despite the relatively low crime rates, there is still a need to supplement the overworked local law enforcement agencies’ efforts.  Licensed investigators with ICS are the perfect solution, providing services from highly trained and experienced professionals who will dedicate their time and energy to your case all the way to the end.
