Crime in Pine Lake, Georgia:

In 2016, the crime index was 328.6, higher than the U.S. average of 253.6.

The crime rate is a different number entirely as it is based on a set population of 100,000 to show the rate between cities that are small and those that are large. For example, Pine Lake had 37 crimes reported, which seems like a very small number and therefore a safe place to live, but when you take into account that the town’s population is around 700 it means that one out of 19 people were victims of a crime. If Pine Lake had a population of 100,000, there would be 4,805 crimes per those 100,000 citizens. This rate is higher than the Georgia state average of 3,402 crimes for every 100,000 residents and higher than the national average of 2,837 crimes per 100,000 people as well.

Violent crimes (rape, murder, robbery, and assault) have a rate of 649 violent crimes per 100,000 residents in Pine Lake. Again this rate is higher than both the average in the state of Georgia which has 398 crimes per 100,000 citizens, and higher than the U.S. average of 386 crimes for every 100,000 people. Property crimes are also higher in Pine Lake with 4,156 for every 100,000 people. The national average is 2,451 per 100,000 individuals and the average in Georgia is 3,005 per 100,000 residents.

This means that the overall crime rate in Pine Lake is 69% higher than the national average and Pine Lake is safer than only 12% of cities in the United States. Back to our 100,000 people, if there were 100,000 residents in Pine Lake, then there would be an average of 13.16 crimes daily in Pine Lake. As it is, your chances of becoming the victim of any crime in Pine Lake are 1 in 21 and it doesn’t appear to be getting better. The number of total year over year crimes in Pine Lake has increased by 69%.
