Youngstown Private Investigator

Ohio is one of the more populated states in the country, boasting just over 11.5 million people. In 2011, approximately 422,000 index crimes, which include violent crimes against people, as well as property crimes, were reported.  The number averages out to 36.62 index crimes reported annually per 1,000 residents, which is a metric often used to determine crime rates.  Of those crimes, 3.07 were violent, while 33.55 were property crimes, compared to national medians of 3.9 and 29.1, respectively.  The city of Youngstown, with its population of over 66,000 people, rates as safer than only 3% of cities in the United States.  Its violent crime rate is a significant 9.33 incidents per 1,000 residents, while property crimes rate at 61.33 per 1,000 residents.  With such high crime rates, it is obvious that the resources available to the local law enforcement agencies are insufficient.  Hiring an ICS private investigator will ensure that your case is being looked at with the utmost scrutiny and professionalism by a dedicated investigator.
