This was a comment we received:
I am concerned about your statement that the crime rate is Greenwood is "very high". Are you using the city population
and then using all the crime in both county and city? I also am interested in knowing where you got the population of 22,000 people that live in
Greenwood. This may be the population in the City but if you add the County population you will come up with 70,000 plus. I owuld certainly
appreciate that you revisit the population and crime and correct your site.
Here was our response:
City-Data.com reports that the crime index in Greenwood is 751 vs. the national average of 319. There was only 1 reported murder but a considerable number of other reported crimes.
