Greenville’s crime rate was lower than all but three of the state’s 15 largest cities, according to statistics released Thursday by the attorney general.

That drop gave the city the 12th lowest crime rate among the 15 largest municipalities. Greenville was ninth among the largest cities in 2010. Click here for the Department of Justice report.
