Cruise Ship Crime

Crime aboard cruise ships is on the rise due to the size of the ships and the number of people choosing this type of travel. In a recent report the USA Government Accounting office stated that out of the 287 alleged crimes from January 2010 to September 2013 only 81 have been acknowledged by the FBI. Meanwhile, only 8 types of crimes require reporting: homicide, suspicious death, missing U.S. national, kidnapping, assault with serious bodily injury, theft of money or property over $10,000.00, and certain sexual offenses. Based on the fact that only certain offenses are reportable, BCSI can assist you with these investigations or any other matter at sea.
