A new study shows crime was down across the state through 2011, though Lancaster County continued to post one of the highest crime tallies in its five-county region.
Released this week as part of the Crime in South Carolina 2011 Report, the statistics showed a 2.2 percent decline in the rate of violent crime throughout the state in 2011 compared to the previous year. The report is compiled as a joint effort between the S.C. Law Enforcement Division and the S.C. Department of Public Safety.
