FORT MILL — Tega Cay and Fort Mill are among the safest cities in the state, according to statistics compiled by one company. But that company’s vast data base shows other numbers that suggest no one should become complacent.
The company, SafeWise, recently released a report that ranked Tega Cay and Fort Mill the second and 14th safest cities in South Carolina, respectively. It’s the second consecutive year Tega Cay was ranked No. 2 and Fort Mill is consistently in the top tier of S.C. cities and towns surveyed for safety by SafeWise and other companies.
Rankings are based on incident reports analyzed by the companies.
In addition to safety tips and home security products promoted on the SafeWise website, the company provides a link to a database showing where sex offenders are registered by ZIP code. There are nearly 40 people registered in the 29715 and 29708 ZIP codes combined.
The 29708 code includes registered offenders who live just over the border in south Charlotte. The data base allows users to view information on a map that has additional links as well as individual names, photos and other information.
