While Simpsonville's crime statistics are higher than national average crime rates, they are drastically lower than major U.S. cities. Violent crimes in 2010 totalled 82 for the year. 2006 statistics of violent crime in Simpsonville reflect there was not one murder, reported incidents of rape were slightly higher than the national average(39 per 100,000 in Simpsonville, with a national average of 33 per 100,000), and incidents of aggravated assaults were what tipped the 2006 violent crime scales, tallying in at 75% over the national average. [2] In 2007 the personal crime incidents rate tallied in at 6 per 1000 residents, while the national average was 1.3 per 1000. In September 2007, the FBI reported that the state of South Carolina's violent crime rate was the highest in the nation per capita, although Simpsonville is not mentioned at all in the article. Car theft in Simpsonville was lower than the national average, causing unsubstantiated claims that Simpsonville allegedly has a high rate of car-jackings to be discredited. [3]
