What is the crime rate in Denmark, SC?

According to the most recent data from the FBI, the total crime rate in Denmark is 4,207.2 per 100,000 people. That's 79.34% higher than the national rate of 2,346.0 per 100,000 people and 29.38% higher than the South Carolina total crime rate of 3,251.8 per 100,000 people.

Note: Because the rates of crime are so low in America, we use "per 100,000 people" to make the number a bit easier to compare across locations visually. It's mathematically the same as doing per capita comparisons and isn't conveying that there are 100,000+ people in a location.
