RANKED 15th SAFEST CITY IN SOUTH CAROLINA (out of 246)
We were ranked in 2015 and 2017 as one
of the safest cities in SC, and again in 2018 ranked 15th safest city. Do we have crime? Yes, we do. Every town does, every
municipality, every county, every neighborhood, every street. But we are ranked 15 out of 246 because of our low crime rate.
Different criteria is used in their calculations, but we still ranked 15th safest city out of 246. I think that is very good,
most people do too. But there are some nay-sayers that wouldn't be happy if they found a goose that laid golden eggs.
They would complain that they didn't have two. Irmo Police Department can be thanked for this honorable ranking, and should
be thanked for this.
