The Moncks Corner Police Department  tracks the crime trends in the Town to determine in what actions the department needs to take to make Moncks Corner a safer place to live and work.  Through a few new programs we have put in place, we are hopeful that we will see these crimes continue to trend downward.

Each year, law enforcement agencies are required to report criminal offenses to the FBI within their jurisdiction, according to Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) guidelines. Within these there are two sections:

  1. Violent Crime, which consists of Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery and Aggravated Assault, and
  2. Property Crime, which consists of Burglary, Larceny Theft, Motor Vehicle Theft (FBI list arson but not does include it in the totals for property crime). 

The following information consists of a brief description of current and historic trends and programs and activities undertaken by law enforcement in addressing the problems. Raw data is available at http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/ucr.

All projected data is based upon total reported crimes in year for which official numbers are not yet available, however these numbers may vary somewhat from the FBI reports as their criteria for reportable crimes may vary from the City’s. When the FBI releases its latest data this site will be updated to reflect their published data.

The Crime Rate charts will be updated once the state and nation data is made available.
