About The Inland Empire

According to Wikipedia, The Inland Empire (I.E.), also known as the IE, is an urban or metropolitan—depending on the definition used—area centered around the cities of Riverside and San Bernardino in Southern California. The Inland Empire as an urban area is the fifth largest in the State of California as of the 2000 Census and as a metropolitan area it is 3rd largest in California.

The US Census Bureau defines the Inland Empire as the Riverside-San Bernardino-Ontario metropolitan area consisting of Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, which some consider to be the Inland Empire (such as The New York Times). Residents of certain areas within the two counties, such as the Victor, Coachella, and Temecula Valleys, consider themselves separate from the Inland Empire.

The Census Bureau-defined area (metropolitan area) of the Inland Empire covers more than 27,000 square miles (70,000 km2) and is part of the Greater Los Angeles Area. Home to over 4 million people, it is the third most populous metropolitan area in California and 14th most populous in the United States. However most of the Inland Empire's population is located in the southwest corner of the region bordering metropolitan Los Angeles.

The label Inland Empire evolved informally to distinguish the inland empire region of Southern California from the coastal regions of Southern California. At the end of the 19th century, the Inland Empire was a major center of agriculture, including citrus, dairy, and wine-making. Agriculture declined in the Inland Empire through the 20th century, and since the 1970s the Inland Empire has a rapidly growing population, fed by families migrating in search of affordable housing. The Inland Empire has grown more rapidily as more residential, commercial, and industrial development.

The 909 PI is proud to serve residents and businesses of the entire Inland Empire. Our service area includes all of the Inland Empire from the most Southeastern point bordering Orange County to the most western point of the Inland Empire in Blythe. When in doubt, we can find out. We know the Inland Empire well. So no matter where you live in the Inland Empire you can trust the 909 PI (and our team of Private Investigators) to obtain the powerful information you need to win.
