Tega Cay Ranked Safest City In South Carolina

Posted: Updated:

A recent survey ranked Tega Cay the safest city in South Carolina.

The survey was released this week by Safewise, a website about home security. It ranked the 40 safest cities in South Carolina.

The study paired research with the most recent FBI crime reports to rank the cities.

They analyzed violent crimes, defined as assault, rape, murder or robbery, with property crimes like arson.

“The police department is very visible all the time,” said Tega Cay City Manager, Charlie Funderburk. “The more visible your police officers, the more it’s going to deter that crime.”

The study shows that for every 1,000 crimes that happen in Tega Cay, only .76 of them are violent.
