As a resident of Pauline, South Carolina I am concerned about the growing crime here in Pauline.
We would like a Spartanburg County Sheriff posted here in Pauline, SC. Having the visibility of the Spartanburg County Sheriff would help immensely. Response time would be shortened and other close rural areas could also benefit.
There have been a number of breakins, thefts of property and vehicles, and an assault turned into a murder just a month ago in July, at the local General Store.
We are barely into August and older man was just beaten in his vehicle by another driver who thought the older man was driving to slow. Another incident of the same type also took place within days of that incident.
These incidents are far more serious than teenagers running their four wheelers through a field or someone using Hwy. 56 as a drag strip. Although those incidents occur frequently also.
The undersigned are requesting that Spartanburg County place a Spartanburg County Sheriff in Pauline, South Carolina.
